The Greenwich Red Cross is seeking wheelchairs for its medical loan closet. Wheelchairs are a highly requested item and consistently have a waiting list of a month or more. If you have an unused wheelchair that you would like to donate, please call the Greenwich Red Cross Chapter at 203-869-8444.
Purchasing or renting durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, shower chairs, and commodes can be quite expensive and may not always be covered by insurance. During recovery and rehabilitation, individuals often only need these aids for a few weeks as they progress from wheelchair to walker, to cane, to independence.
For information about the programs and services of the Greenwich Chapter, call 203-869-8444 or visit www.greenwichredcross.org.
