Red Cross Basic Health Short-Term Loan of Medical Equipment for Seniors in Langley and the Fraser Valley

Red Cross Medical Health Equipment Loan Service

No one expects to suffer illness or injury that affects their mobility, their independence or dignity — yet it happens to thousands of people in the Lower Mainland every day: the child who needs crutches after a fall from a bike, or a senior who requires a wheelchair, cane or walker after slipping in the bathtub.

The Canadian Red Cross offers a community-based, volunteer-run program which provides short-term loans of basic health equipment, by donation, to those recovering from surgery or injury, or living with mobility limitations. Last year, over 350 volunteers served 25,000 clients, providing over 54,000 pieces of equipment.

Available equipment includes mobility aids, bath aids, toileting aids, walking aids, and aids to daily living. View our Basic Equipment List

Referrals from a health care professional are required for all items.

Please phone ahead to one of our Service Sites across the Lower Mainland to confirm availability of equipment and hours of operation.
