Saint Stephens United Church of Christ

Medical Equipment Ministry

Offering the Use of Medical Equipment

FREE of Charge

No Strings Attached.

The Medical Equipment Ministry at Saint Stephens is a "Loan Closet" for small to medium-sized medical equipment, such as canes, walkers, wheelchairs, shower chairs, commodes, etc. On occasion, we have also had hospital beds available. 

The equipment is loaned free of charge to anyone who needs it. There are no restrictions and there is no mandatory fee of any kind. A waiver form is signed and filed, and the equipment is loaned for as long as needed with the request that it be returned when you are done with it.

The Medical Equipment Ministry at Saint Stephens is also handy for families who need a piece of equipment for a visiting guest or for a one-time outing.

Equipment is loaned out to people both in and out of Merrill. You are welcome to send someone else to pick up equipment for you if you cannot pick it up yourself.

Available equipment is limited to what is on hand. Selection changes almost daily as equipment is loaned out and returned or donated. You are welcome to call before you come to see if we have the kind of equipment you need on hand.

All equipment is bleach cleaned and checked between users by a dedicated group of volunteers. Necessary repairs are made.

We appreciate your prayers for our ministry and our borrowers. Non-mandatory donations are accepted to defray the costs of cleaning and repairing equipment.

We welcome equipment donations.

Please don't hesitate to call us. We are here to help you.  715.536.7322
