What is the HELP Health Equipment Loan Program?
H.E.L.P., the Health Equipment Loan Program, also known as the HELP Medical Closet, is a community-based free loan program for durable medical equipment.
H.E.L.P. began in 2014 as a way to serve the local community. Research led us to believe that we had both a need and a readily available supply of used durable medical equipment. The gently used pieces were collected from businesses and individuals in the community. A location was found. Volunteers for manning the medical closet and for some pick-up and deliveries stepped up to the task.
Hospital Beds may be delivered and set up for residents of Augusta County and Staunton within a 25-mile radius of Churchville.
Equipment Loans are free regardless of financial circumstance. The standard loan for most durable equipment is three (3) months. Hospital beds are loaned for six months. Please call to renew if you need your loan longer.
Calls will only be answered during facility hours of operation on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
