Durable Medical Equipment Available
The Senior Center has durable medical equipment available for loan. Equipment includes shower chairs, shower benches for a tub, walkers, canes, crutches, rolling walkers, bed rails, grabbers and more! We have a lmited number of purchased/donated Transport Chairs, therefore we must request they be returned in a reasonable lenght of time. We do not loan them out for long term use since many people need them for a weekend, one day, or visiting relatives. We require a $25 deposit to be returned upon return of the chair. The maximum weight is 250lbs.
Fire Department EMTs and Outreach have developed a handy form to place on the outside of your refrigerator that contains all pertinent information should a medical emergency arise. This free, magnetic holder and form is well-known to the emergency response teams in Hopkinton. The File-of-Life form contains information regarding contacting your closest relative or friend, your insurance account numbers and a list of medications you take, along with other information a hospital might need. Please contact the Outreach Department if you would like to have this form. And, if you already have one, please be sure to keep it up-to-date or ask for a new form. If you need assistance in filling it out Outreach would be happy to help.
