Borrow needed medical equipment, free of charge.
Neighbor to Neighbor loans durable medical equipment to local residents and visitors to our area for short-term use (up to six months). All equipment is loaned at NO CHARGE. Available equipment includes hospital beds and bed rails, Hoyer and Sit-to Stand lifts, lift chairs, wheelchairs, transport chairs, walkers, canes, crutches, knee scooters, commodes, elevated toilet seats, bath and shower benches, bariatric-sized equipment to accommodate those weighing up to 500 lbs., and assistive devices. Some items may have waiting lists. We also provide incontinence products, when available. Appointments are needed to gain access to the medical equipment facilities. For an appointment, please call the office at (920) 743-7800 to get the information needed to schedule an appointment with the volunteer on call.
Our main equipment location is in Sturgeon Bay, with satellite sites in Northern Door (between Baileys Harbor and Fish Creek), on Washington Island, and at Door County Medical Center through their Emergency Department. Equipment is provided at no charge to anyone needing it; however, financial donations are appreciated and help us to continue offering this service.
We also accept donations of gently used and new medical equipment. Please contact us to find out what items we accept and how to donate them.
Neighbor to Neighbor has temporarily closed their equipment facilities due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus and the Governor’s Safer-At-Home Mandate. We WILL be available for EMERGENCY NEEDS ONLY! In case of an emergency need of medical equipment, please call the Neighbor to Neighbor cell phone at 920.495.1230. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will notify you when we are once again available for all medical equipment needs. Stay healthy and safe, stay home if you can.
