Managed and staffed entirely by volunteers, the Special Care Equipment Exchange accepts donations of used durable medical equipment and supplies: canes, walkers, tub and shower chairs, manual wheelchairs, commodes, and raised toilet seats. This expensive equipment, not always covered by insurance, is made available, free-of-charge, to community members in need of these items.
Equipment donations may be brought to the Equipment Exchange during weekday business hours. The program does not have funds to purchase any equipment.
To request equipment, please call the Equipment Exchange at 860.612.6302. Once notified that the item is available, it can be picked up during weekday business hours.
Volunteers are needed to assist with the receipt of the donated equipment, as well as to coordinate and fulfill requests from individuals needing items. Hours are flexible and training is provided. For further information, please call Hospital for Special Care Volunteer Services office at 860.827.4774.
