Medical Equipment & Supplies

Our Equipment Loan Program is there to help ease some of the burden on our clients and their families. Our Palliative clients can borrow any pieces of medical equipment we have on hand and use them until no longer required. Our Director of Client  Services meets with clients and their families, and with input from health professionals helps determine what would be helpful. Dundas County Hospice arranges for delivery and pick up for palliative clients.

We will also loan equipment on a short term (max. 3 months), basis to members of the community who are recovering from surgery, accidents or illness in the event we have an excess of the item. In this case, the borrower must arrange for pick-up and delivery of equipment, present their Ontario Health Card and sign our Loan Agreement. Community Loan pick up and return hours are on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10am and 2pm. Please call the office 613-535-2215 to make arrangements for a Community Loan.

 

Anyone living in Dundas County with a life-threatening illness. Also, if available, equipment may be borrowed on a short-term basis by community members who are recovering from surgery, an accident or illness for a period of 3 months. Health Card and basic identifying information is required.
