Here you can find out all you need to know about our community equipment loan store in Calderdale.

This is a partnership between Calderdale Council and the NHS in Calderdale.

The service can provide you and your family with equipment to help you live more independently in your own home.

What do we offer?

Equipment to help with:

  • Bathing, showering and toileting.
  • Moving, handling and walking.
  • Household and kitchen tasks.
  • Nursing tasks.

All our equipment is clean and maintained to the highest standards. All returned equipment is recycled after a deep clean.

What do I do if I need help?

If you are at home

You can:

  • Call our Gateway to Care team who will be able to help you.
  • Get in touch with your District Nurse through your doctor's surgery to discuss your needs.

If you are in hospital

Your Occupational Therapist will discuss your needs with you and agree on the equipment that will be suitable.

Do I need to pay for the equipment I borrow?

No. It is loaned to you free of charge.

If you prefer, you can buy your own equipment from outlets like:

What do I do if it is no longer needed?

We can arrange to have it collected. Note: Items should be returned in a good state of repair.

Please contact the Loan Store reception for help and advice.

What do I do if it is broken?

Please contact the Loan Store reception as soon as possible.

If it is a simple breakdown, the team can usually carry out repairs or maintenance in your own home. If this not be possible, the equipment will need to be returned to our stores. In this case, it will be replaced or we will talk to you about what alternatives there are.

We will try to make sure that the disruption to you and your family is minimal.
