As mentioned before, A Seniors' Loss of Independence
due to infirmities is gradual. Loan or Lending Closets answer the physical needs when coping with the effects of aging.
groups serving seniors have set up loan closets by collecting donated items from magnifiers, to wireless headphones for watching
TV, to canes, walkers, wheelchairs elevated toilet seats, etc., etc. The groups include: Church Outreach program, Nurses'
Clubs, Community Outreach Programs or Senior Centers. In many instances they have limited inventory and might just serve members.
result is a person has to make many calls to find an item. SiA's goal is to create a NETWORK of local lending closets to
reduce the time and effort for a Senior or Caregiver to find the right item.
