Find a Local Loan Closets 

As mentioned before, As Autumn Travelers 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.


The Autumn Traveler network has identified over 35-lending closets that are in the North/Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. We are in the process of creating a Loan Closet Alliance to better serve the needs of older Autumn Travelers in coping with age or mobility issues.

We have compiled a directory the N/NW Suburban Lending
