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 from any other source.  This could be people who have no extended benefits, minimal benefits or limited financial resources.
