Mission

St. Louis Health Equipment Lending Program provides
Home Medical Equipment (HME) to any individual in need at no charge or
fee.Our program
is a new solution to an old problem faced by individuals and their caregivers
in the metropolitan St. Louis area. St. Louis HELP receives donations of new
and used HME from individuals and businesses. The organization refurbishes and
cleans the equipment and then loans the equipment, at no cost or fee, to
community members both young and old from all walks of life. The uninsured,
underinsured, disabled, elderly and their caregivers (an often overlooked
group) are at particular risk of facing barriers to accessing HME. These
vulnerable populations continue to experience reduced access to health care
services demonstrating a continuing need for a strong and viable safety net
such as St. Louis HELbut are not limited to, manual and
power wheelchairs, scooters, canes, crutches, walkers, shower chairs, tub
transfer benches, grab bars, elevated toilet seats, portable commodes,
wheelchair ramps, seating cushions, back supports/positioning devices, dressing
aids, electric hospital beds, van lifts, lift chairs and stair lifts.
