Lending Cupboard

The Lending Cupboard is intended for use by families served by the Children's Therapy and Family Resource Centre. Families and caregivers frequently wish to try out the equipment that may be useful in meeting their child's goals. The Lending Cupboard is in place to assist families by loaning necessary equipment to help with day-to-day functioning and skill development in the home or community. It focuses on providing equipment for short term needs and for the assessment of long term needs.

The loan period for the Lending Cupboard items is up to three months. The therapist involved with your child can extend this period if necessary. If a family/caregiver is loaned equipment, it is their responsibility to return it within the stated loan period and to return it in clean and good condition. If equipment is damaged or lost, the borrower is expected to cover a portion of the cost. Some equipment, learning aides, games and adapted toys that are available include:

  • Adapted chairs
  • Adapted toilet seats
  • Adapted tricycles
  • Balls
  • Bath equipment
  • Communication aides
  • Crutches/canes
  • Desktop easels
  • Helmets
  • Rolls
  • Skill Development Games
  • Standing Frames
  • Walkers
  • Wedges
  • Weights
  • Wheelchairs
