No Longer Needed

What do you do with medical equipment when the need is no longer a need in your home?  So many times the shower chair, the walker or wheelchair, the medical bed, the canes, the ramps, any thing else you can think of are purchased to help care for your loved ones.  It can be like a well equipped clinical setting.

And then…when the need is no longer present, the equipment can be moved along to others who are in need.  Some may purchase from you and get a “good deal,” others may be in need of a donation.

I have seen many people benefit from passed along medical equipment.  It is amazingly helpful, economical and generous.  Let me know what other options you have tried and we can add it to this list.

Below are quick option points to consider: 

*  Craig’s list/local consignment (on-line)

*  Contact Assisted Living Facilities and ask about placing an ad where their residents have access to see

*  League of Human Dignity writes a newsletter every other month and can run an ad for you

*  Local Veteran’s Organizations (ex:  Legion Auxiliary has woman fighting for soldiers needs)

*  _______________?  What are your ideas to share with Conversations Readers?
