Equipment Loans

Equipment Loans

Beaumond House provide an equipment loan service to palliative patients within our 15 mile catchment area. We loan out around 200 items per year and this is a free service, we rely purely on donations to acquire the equipment we loan out. We loan out wheelchairs, riser recliner chairs, commodes as well as other smaller items to patients at the end of their life to help them manage better in their own homes and to make things more comfortable for them.

Very often we get requests to loan out equipment at a moment’s notice to fill the gap while equipment is being ordered by the Occupational Therapist. When equipment is returned to us we make sure it is cleaned and serviced by our volunteers ready to go out again. Once a year we have all electrical equipment PAT tested to meet with regulations. We rely heavily on volunteers to deliver and collect the riser recliner chairs to the patients home. We are also very fortunate to have the use of a hire van from Falcon Motors on a weekly basis to be  able to carry out this delivery service, without this generosity we would not be able to offer this service to our patients Beaumond House provide an equipment loan service to palliative patients within our 15 mile catchment area.
