Loan Closet Hours

Mondays—Fridays 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The loan closet has assistive equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs, tub chairs, transfer benches and more for a suggested contribution of $10 for each item. Suggested contribution for hospital beds and lift chairs, when available, is $25.

Often caregivers experience:

  • Physical Demands
  • Emotional Stress
  • Conflicts with work, family or other responsibilities are common.

At The Hub, we have supports to ease the burdens that accompany the important task of Caregiving.

How do we help?

Information and Referral

Learn about services and programs at The Hub available to you, the community and the person you care for.

Education and Training

Opportunities to gain informative knowledge and experience in becoming a confident and effective caregiver.

Assistance

Adaptive equipment is available through the Loan Closet.  Books and videos are available through the Lending Library.

Respite

Respite is offered on an intermittent basis which can be in your own home.  Based on a suggested contribution, respite is affordable for everyone.

Counseling and Support

Support groups meet Mondays at 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m at The Hub.  This can be an opportunity to pick up ideas and tips from caregivers with first-hand experience while also supporting the caregiver in their journey.

Supplemental Services

Supplies, equipment, and some home modifications may be available to the caregivers on a case by case basis.

Older Relative Caregivers

Resources are available for older relative caregivers 55 years and older raising children 17 years and younger.

It is important not to feel alone in your caregiving journey. Navigating the way through a changing identity, relationship, and daily role can be challenging; however, we would like to help you or someone you know!
