Red Cross Short Term Equipment Loan Program

The Short Term Health Equipment Loan Program alleviates the pressures that come along with injury or illness, assists seniors with mobility issues, allows people to return home from hospital earlier, and supports those in palliative care who wish to spend their final days in the comfort of their own home. The Canadian Red Cross provides aids such as wheelchairs, walkers, bath seats and benches, commodes and toilet seats, crutches and canes, bed handles and other durable medical equipment.
