We are pleased to lend any Needham resident medical equipment at no charge, based on availability in our collection. Do you have a visitor/family member coming who needs medical equipment, but can’t travel with it? Do you or a family member have a short-term injury or are having surgery and need equipment during the recovery period, but not forever?
Among the items available are
- wheelchairs [heavy duty and light weight]
- bath seats
- bed rails
If you have any questions about the availability of equipment listed or equipment not mentioned, please call our office at 781-444-2415 to inquire. Items can be picked up at our office at 570 Hillside Avenue from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.
All borrowed medical equipment is loaned out contact-free. Call the Council and we will put the equipment out on the front porch for you to pick up at your convenience. Any equipment that is returned, spends 72 hours quarantined and then thoroughly cleaned before it is loaned out again.
Do you have medical equipment that you would like to donate? Please call us before coming to inquire if we can accommodate your donation.
All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law; tax-exempt statements are available at our office.
