Equipment Loan Program

Printer-friendly version

The Equipment Loan Program of the ALS Society of BC is designed to help ALS patients in BC and Yukon to cope with the daily challenges of decreasing mobility and loss of independence by providing basic and essential assistive equipment.  Patients are offered equipment if they are unable to obtain it another source.  This could be people who have no extended benefits, minimal benefits or limited financial resources.  There is no fee charged to access the ALS BC equipment loan program.

The annual budget of this program is over $400,000 excluding administrative expense.  

In 2014 the Society processed:

1,853 requests for equipment  (+10% compared to 2013);

2,201 equipment deliveries were made (+4% compared to 2013);

1,359 equipment maintenance cleaning and repair orders (+11% compared to 2013).
