My father is being released from a rehabilitation facility in two days. He will need a commode, a shower bench, wheelchair, etc. Where should we start looking for those items?

The Department of Elder Affairs has an equipment loan program. We accept donations of gently used or new medical equipment which we then loan out on an as needed basis. When someone doesn’t need the equipment anymore, we ask that it be cleaned and returned to us so someone else can benefit from it. We have a short loan information form to be filled out when the equipment is picked up.
