Health Equipment Loan Program

Our short term loan program alleviates the pressures that come along with injury or illness; assists seniors with mobility issues, allows people to return home from hospital earlier, and supports those in palliative care who wish to spend their final days in the comfort of their own home.

In Alberta, the Red Cross provides loans of up to 6 months of medical and health equipment aids.
