The medical equipment lending service is Yad Sarah's best known and arguably it’s most notable. Some 200,000 people a year – those recovering from surgery, accident or illness as well as elderly and disabled persons – borrow medical or rehabilitative equipment free of charge, free of bureaucracy. There are more than 100 branches around the country, from Eilat in the south to Kiryat Shemona in the north. They are operated by volunteers lending hundreds of different types of equipment for periods of from one to three months. As with all Yad Sarah services, care is taken to provide individual guidance and detailed instructions on the use of all borrowed equipment.
All you need to do is go into the branch nearest your home, and leave a deposit that will be refunded when you return the item. Borrowed equipment enables families to care for their loved ones at home in a safe and comfortable environment. The availability of such a variety of equipment in one warm and welcoming place empowers patients and their families to approach the process of recuperation and rehabilitation with a more positive attitude, something that contributes to a better healing experience.
Yad Sarah also operates a lending service for special equipment, including oxygen generators, in cooperation with the health funds.
