Equipment Loan Program

Medical equipment is essential. We work with you and your clinic team to determine the equipment that will be the most helpful. If equipment is delayed or too costly, we offer help through our equipment loan program, ensuring you have access to the equipment you need.

Marjorie Shimer Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program

The Marjorie Shimer Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program provides durable medical equipment (DME) at no charge to those who do not have DME coverage through health insurance, have high-out-pocket deductibles, and/or do not otherwise have the means to pay for it themselves. To qualify, a patient must have a diagnosis of ALS and reside within areas where we serve.

Some examples of equipment that is offered through this program include:

  • Power wheelchairs
  • Transport/companion wheelchairs
  • Manual wheelchairs
  • Shower chairs
  • Transfer devices such as gait belts and transfer boards
  • Over-the-bed tables
  • Hoyer lifts
  • High-back rolling shower chairs
