Need to Borrow Medical Equipment?

Linda Shannon-Hills

A medical equipment loan list is available on the SBR HOA website under SBR INFO. The equipment available to loan comes from residents at the Ranch willing to loan to our neighbors while they recover from surgery, injury, or an accident. Their equipment is stored at their homes for loan, but they can be contacted directly to borrow items needed. The variety of items range from walkers, wheelchairs, canes, gel packs for icing, support boots, knee braces, crutches, ice machines, shower chairs, toilet seat rails and raised seats, four-wheel scooters, knee scooters, and much more.

You can find this pdf list on the SBR HOA website at Go to the SBR INFO tab, then scroll down to Medical Equipment Loans.

The Creative Giving Club of SaddleBrooke Ranch has also offered items to keep, made by the group for residents in need. The items include heart pillows for mastectomy surgeries and heart surgeries; rehab dog-bone shaped pillows for back and neck; adult neck pillows; walker and wheelchair bags and wheelchair seat covers (order for exact size); neck scarves with pockets; seat belt cushions to protect port lines; catheter or ostomy bag covers; chemo caps; shirt covers (adult bibs); soft fleece blankets; and activities/fidget mats and aprons for dementia patients.

If you have equipment that you would like to add to the list, send an email to SBR resident Linda Shannon-Hills at [email protected] with the name of the equipment, size, owner name, address, email, and phone number.
