The medical equipment loan program continues through Florence Parks and Recreation. The department is partnering with Florence Gardens to offer a Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program. The program enables citizens or visitors, to borrow medical equipment such as walkers, crutches or wheelchairs for as long as necessary.

This is a common need particularly following surgery and will save users money by not having to purchase the equipment.

Those who wish to borrow medical equipment can go to the Florence Fitness Center, at 133 N. Main Street during open hours, and follow a simple check-out system. Users will need to sign a waiver before the requested equipment is issued. Equipment is also available at the Florence Gardens Clubhouse. The program is supported by Sun City Anthem at Merrill Ranch.

Individuals interested in borrowing medical equipment, may call the Fitness Center at (520) 868-7587 to check on equipment availability.
