As Seniors age. we gradually lose Independence due to infirmities and illness. We may not qualify
for medical equipment through Medicare or ??. A nearby Loan (Lending) Closet may be the answer. Most of the time Medical
equipment from local lending closets are free or have minimal rental fees.
Various groups serving older
adults have set up loan closets by collecting donated items from magnifiers, to wireless headphones for watching TV, to canes,
walkers, wheelchairs elevated toilet seats, etc., etc. The groups include: Church Outreach program, Nurses' Clubs, Community
Outreach Programs or Senior Centers. In many instances they have limited inventory and might just serve local residents.
