Loan Closet

Society for Disabilities maintains a durable medical equipment loan closet to assist individuals experiencing a temporary or permanent disability to obtain the equipment they need. If medical insurance does not cover the equipment that an individual needs or is taking too long to provide that equipment, the Society for Disabilities wants to help.

We loan durable medical equipment to individuals that live in Stanislaus County free of charge. If you live outside of Stanislaus County we charge a nominal “cash only” deposit that will be returned to you once you return the equipment.

Durable Medical Equipment that may be available to borrow: (All equipment is subject to availability. We rely on donations & the return of loaned equipment. Some items may have a waiting list.)
