Medical Equipment Loans

Fox Valley Hands of Hope provides short-term medical equipment loans for wheelchairs, walkers, canes, commodes, shower benches and tub transfer benches for three months time. This health equipment loan program is available free of charge to anyone in the Fox Valley community, regardless of whether or not you are one of our clients.

To ensure availability of equipment for personal use or place a hold on an item – contact us.

We also accept donations of gently used equipment, in good condition. Please call if you have items you would like to donate so we can determine if we have the capacity. 


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2022 – We are renovating our building and a few things are temporarily changing! Starting Saturday August 20, 2022 Lending Closet services will be suspended for the rest of the year. Friday August, 19, 2022 is your last day to borrow equipment if you need it. If you have items loaned out and you want to return them before the end of the year, we ask that you get them to the building by Wednesday August 24, 2022. If you would like to still use your borrowed items until the end of the year please hold on to them! Do not worry about the original due date. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. All other FVHH grief services will continue at partnered facilities. If you are a current client, your clinician will share with you the new location to receive support. We understand this is a big change, but before we know it the Support Center will be transformed into a beautiful, new facility for our clients. Please contact either 630.232.2233 or if you have any questions. We will respond to any messages within two business days.

Below are the required guidelines for loaning and donating equipment:

  • Must call ahead at 630.232.2233 and make an appointment to pick up equipment.
  • Pick-up, returns, and donations hours: Monday-Friday by appointment only. Please call to set up your appointment.
  • When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, please come to the front door of the Support Center and ring the door bell located on the righthand side. Someone will come out to assist you!
