What is AT & DME?
Assistive Technology (AT) is a variety of equipment or adaptive Items that help with everyday tasks for a variety of people’s circumstances.
(Examples would be, Parkensons forks, automated pill dispensers, low impact exercise equipment, stands for devices, IV stands, etc. )
Durable Medical Equipment (DME) is medical equipment that usually helps with such things as mobility, self-care, or general functionality for individuals with physical hindrances from their disabilities.
(Examples would be, walkers, wheelchairs, rollators, Hoyer lifts, Showerchairs, commodes, etc.)
How do we get our equipment?
Based on donation, we accept AT and DME that is in clean, functional condition. Through our Reuse Program, we execute preemptive cleaning on all AT and DME equipment during these times of high health concern. Sanitation happens on arrival of donated items, then our items are stored and redistributed to our clients as appropriate for their personal needs.
Availability of such items varies based on what has been donated to us, and our available storage space.
Both our Redding office and Chico offices have different available space so what we accept and do not accept may change over time. If you are curious as to what we accept or don't accept please contact the office closest to your residence and ask us, and we would be glad to answer any of your questions.
