Senior Connections Loan Closet is open 2-3 p.m. Monday-Friday at the Senior Center, 1527 Tower Ave. It provides durable medical equipment such as canes, wheel chairs, shower benches and commodes to residents of Douglas County who need them.
Equipment loaned out includes wheelchairs, commodes, canes, walkers, toilet seat risers, bath benches and bath chairs.
If you are in need of such items, for example while receiving physical therapy or recovering from surgery, etc., you may check them out, and keep them for as long as you need them. When you no longer need to use the item, just return them to the Loan Closet. There is no fee for using this equipment.
The Loan Closet is in need of more equipment. The items we are in need of at this time are wheelchairs, shower chairs and benches, and canes. If you would like to donate any of these items to the Loan Closet, call 715-394-3611 so the items can be accepted. Also, when donating items, or returning borrowed items, make sure the items are clean and in working order.
