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 $586,783 excluding administrative expense.  

In 2015 the Society processed:

1,779 requests for equipment  (2014:1,853, 2013:1,673);

2,389 equipment deliveries were made (2014:2,201, 2013:2,113);

1,502 equipment maintenance cleaning and repair orders (2014:1,359, 2013:1,1,196).
