Listing: Medical Lending Closet Directory


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. 

For people seeking assistance outside of the Chicago area, please contact your local village, township hall, faith/worship congregations, or senior center for lending closets in your town.
