Calumet County residents have a convenient and free option when it comes to temporary home health care equipment needs.
Since the late 1970s, a loan closet has been a busy and popular part of the services offered on the second floor of the Calumet County Courthouse.
According to Home Health Care and Hospice Supervisor Elizabeth Propson, the loan closet exists to provide residents a valuable service when they are in need of assistance at home.
From sock aids, shoe horns and grabbers, to walkers, wheelchairs, crutches, shower chairs and commodes, the Health Department loan closet can provide needed equipment without cost to residents wishing to try products before purchasing and those recovering from surgery or other ailments.
