KidStart Equipment Lending Library
Parents with young chilren who require special instruction or therapy have a special resource through the
Next Step for Life~KidStart Lending Library.  
Any parent or professional in Jefferson County can join KidStart for a small $5 membership fee each year.  
The library contains developmental materials, therapy/adapted equipment, sensory devises, books, and
developmental toys that can be checked out.  Sometimes children tire of a toy and need variety.  
These specialized materials can be very expensive and sometimes it is trial and error to
find just the right piece of equipment.  
Items can be borrowed to see if the child will benefit or tolerate before buying.  
Items can be borrowed while a new model is on order.  
Many patrons donate outgrown equipment to be added to our inventory.  KidStart saves money, resources, and the headache of
paying a lot of money for a piece of equipment that isn't right.  
It is also a great way to
recycle usable equipment.

to leave your seat to put it on. Removable fleece lining provides extra warmth,

As a host of many-a-home-improvement show will state,
"Having the right tools makes all the difference!"
Using the right equipment to navigate the day improves the life of a
family caregiver in ways you cannot even imagine.

Navigating the hurdles and hoops to insurance paid medical equipment
takes research and careful planning.
Sometimes a doctor may be reluctant to wright a prescription for a wheelchair,
because they fear the patient will "give up" and not continue to walk.
Medicare RENTS most equipment for 12 months, then there is a buy-out if the
patient needs continued use. You can pay an upgrade fee on the rental if you
desire a more expensive model wheelchair or walker. The allowed amount for
the cost of a wheelchair is minimal, and by purchasing your own, you can choose
the features you want.
If you have the means, it is just better to buy the equipment you want.
A transport chair comes in VERY handy if you want  to go to the Botanical Gardens or
go  shopping at the hardware store or visit a relative.
It is easier to get the person in the wheelchair, out of the chair, into the car and
back out of the car without the big bulky metal armrests in the way.

You can ask your church or community organization if they have
equipment to borrow. Below find organizations that list used equipment for
sale at a reduced price, or have some to borrow or rent.
We also have companies that sell NEW equipment and accessories listed.
