Lending Closet

Hours of Operation: Monday through Friday 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

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. Monetary donations are welcome and greatly appreciated.

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