Lending Closet

At our Arthur C. Nielsen, Jr. Campus in Northfield, we operate a Lending Closet from which people can borrow durable medical equipment. Our inventory fluctuates based on public demand, but these items are generally available:

  • Canes
  • Commodes
  • Long-Handled Shoe Horns
  • Raised Toilet Seats
  • Reachers (for picking up objects)
  • Shower Chairs
  • Sock Aids (to assist with putting on socks)
  • Tub Transfer Benches
  • Walkers
  • Wheelchairs

The Lending Closet is particularly useful for seniors who are recovering at home after surgery or illness. Items can be borrowed for a period of three months. Extended borrowing periods can sometimes be accommodated, if our inventory permits.

This is a free service, and there are no membership, residency or income requirements for those who wish to borrow items.

For more information, please call our Administrative Offices at 847.784.6000.
