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:
- 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
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.
