Brookline Council on Aging Equipment Loan Fund (ELF)
This program accepts and redistributes donations of smaller, gently used durable medical equipment such as canes, walkers, shower chairs/benches, commodes, bed rails, and incontinence supplies such as chux, depends, and booster pads. Due to space limitations, the program cannot accept all items. Please do not drop items off without checking on whether or not your item can be used. The program does not accepts crutches, commode buckets, opened packages of incontinence supplies, or miscellaneous medical supplies (i.e. gauze). This program is available to Brookline and its surrounding communities.
Please contact the H.E.L.P. line at 617-730-2752 to arrange donation drop-offs or to inquire about our current inventory. If we do not have an item available, we can also provide resources of other programs.
*Please note that the program cannot give recommendations regarding best items for a particular situation.
