Everyone qualifies. The Lending Cupboard is here to help everyone in need of medical equipment, regardless of your age, your income, or the severity of your need. Call us to talk about your specific needs. We’re sure we can help you.
It’s as simple as dropping by the office, located at #1-7803 50 Avenue in Red Deer. You will be required to complete a loan agreement then we’ll set you up with the equipment you need. And we’ll do it quickly.
Absolutely. We are here to help you whether your needs are short term or long term. We have a wide variety of medical equipment to meet your specific needs.
Our equipment loans are meant to be short term, but we understand that you can’t predict with certainty how long you will need the medical equipment. Our goal is to make sure you have the medical equipment. For clients whose needs are very long term and/or permanent, our staff will help clients seek available options to get funding to purchase their own equipment.
Though we would love to be able to help absolutely everyone, we continue to see an increasing demand. The Lending Cupboard’s mandate is to serve people living or staying in Central Alberta. If we know of a similar service closer to your home, we will refer you there.
While there is no fee to borrow equipment from The Lending Cupboard, we are a registered charity and we encourage a small donation of $10 to help us be sustainable to meet the growing demand for our services. For donations of $20 or more we do issue a tax receipt.
No one will ever be turned away. Our mission here at The Lending Cupboard is to ensure that all central Albertans have access to medical equipment and daily living aids that enhances their quality of life.
For donations of $20 or more, we are pleased to issue a tax receipt.
Each equipment loan application stands open for 6 months and can be added to at any time without incurring any additional costs.
