Brookline Council on Aging Equipment Loan Fund (E.L.F.)

This program accepts donations of smaller, gently used durable medical equipment such as canes, walkers, shower benches, commodes, bed boards, and grabbers for redistribution to individuals in need. Due to space limitations, the program cannot accept all items. Please do not drop items off without checking on whether or not your item can be used. The program never accepts crutches, commode buckets, opened Depends, or miscellaneous medical supplies (i.e. gauze). This program is available to Brookline and its surrounding communities.

The E.L.F. program publishes monthly featured items in the Senior News and Events, as well as pictures of unique items available on the Brookline Senior Center Facebook page.

Please contact the H.E.L.P. line at 617-730-2752 to arrange drop-off of donations or to request available items. If we do not have an item available, we can also provide resources of other programs.

*Please note that the program cannot give recommendations regarding best items for a particular situation.
