WHO IS h.e.l.p. ?

h.e.l.p. is a Health Equipment Lending Program, designed to provide access to durable home medical equipment for Ozaukee County seniors in need.

h.e.l.p. accepts donations of durable home medical equipment, within our guidelines, that is in good working condition.

h.e.l.p. evaluates, cleans and readies the equipment to loan.

h.e.l.p. loans the items to those in need.

A deposit of $10 to $20 per item is refunded upon return of cleaned, functioning equipment.

h.e.l.p. can benefit people in need on a short-term basis during recovery from an illness, surgery or injury or on a longer term basis for an individual living with a disability.

h.e.l.p. is a collaboration of community partners in Ozaukee County who believe those in need of durable home medical equipment should have access to it.

h.e.l.p. PARTNERS

  • Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of Ozaukee County
  • United Way of Northern Ozaukee County
  • Interfaith Caregivers of Ozaukee County

 

Recycling and reuse of durable home medical equipment makes sense. When h.e.l.p. lends gently used equipment, our community benefits. It ensures that necessary medical equipment is available to those who need it most.
