When my father moved in I was able to get a hospital bed for him and other necessary medical equipment from the American Cancer Society local chapter. Another helpful resource was my local town hall. They would lend walkers, wheelchairs, commodes, etc. from a community bank. Once I didn’t need them any more, they went back to the community center.
By the time my brother moved in ten years later, I had to get the hospital bed from a local hospital supply company. There was a monthly rental fee, I believe. They came in and set everything up and removed it when I no longer needed it. The community collection was still available for wheelchairs and walkers.
