What We Do
We take in gently used medical equipment and gift it to low income, uninsured patients in our community. Assist M.E. gets wheelchairs, bedside commodes, walkers, shower chairs and other medical equipment from individual donors and organizations. IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS: Assist ME takes in gently used medical and mobility equipment and gifts it to low income, uninsured patients. During the crisis, equipment donations have plummeted. We need funds to buy wheelchairs and other equipment to get us through this period. We serve 4 to 5 patients per week. Having the right equipment reduces falls 90%! You can see our wish list at https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/DQAZUJ2A4EQB?ref%5F=cm%5Fwl%5Fhuc%5Fview&pldnSite=1&ref_=nav_signin&
Interesting Info
  • We support 6 to 7 low income, uninsured patients per week
  • Patients with the right mobility equipment are 90% less likely to fall or to be re-admitted.
  • That every patient in the community has the medical and mobility equipment they need.
