About Our Services

Power and manual wheelchairs, scooters, rollators, canes, crutches, hospital beds, walkers, shower chairs, tub transfer benches, standers, adaptive strollers, hoyer lifts, raised toilet seats, lift chairs, and other specialized items. All of our home medical equipment is donated, so our inventory is dependent on what people or companies donate to us.

Prior to coming to our office, please call 770-491-9014, press 2, and ask our staff if we have a particular piece of home medical equipment in stock. We will need the height and weight of the person using the equipment in order to match equipment to person. If we have the item requested, we will tag it and you will have two business days to pick it up. If we do not have it, you can call back periodically as our inventory constantly changes.
