Lending Closet

Hours of Operation: 

Monday - Friday

10 a.m. - 3 p.m.


Our Northfield Campus operates a Free Lending Closet from which people can borrow durable medical equipment. The Lending Closet is particularly useful for people recovering from surgery, injury, 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 completely free service, with no membership, residency, age or income requirements. Monetary donations are welcome and greatly appreciated. 


Our inventory fluctuates based on public demand, but these items are generally available:

  • Canes
  • Long-Handled Shoe Horns
  • Reachers (for picking up objects)
  • Sock Aids (to assist with putting on socks)
  • Walkers
  • Wheelchairs

Due to health and safety concerns, the Lending Closet does not loan out or accept personal care/hygiene equipment such as raised toilet seats, commodes, transfer benches, shower chairs or crutches.
