Listing: Medical Lending Closet Directory - Chicago and suburbs

Body

Medical lending closets are an alternative to purchasing short used equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs, commodes, crutches, canes and bath seats for a short duration such as rehabilitation recovery or a visiting relative. Most of the organizations are through the Village Hall, Township or Senior Center and loan directly to their residential base only. If you do not see your home listed, please reach out to your religious directory, and or township for assistance.
