SAIL maintains an assistive technology and equipment loan closet. Items that can be borrowed from our loan closet include but are not limited to; wheel chairs, walkers, magnifiers, and hearing various devices. Staff provide workshops and trainings so you can learn to utilize assistive technologies. The Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan offices offer computer access, with internet capabilities, for those of you with voice recognition software. The Consumer Service Fund assists with purchasing adaptive equipment, home modifications or other services to promote independence.
Also, if you have equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs, shower chairs, etc that you would like to donate to SAIL for a tax deduction, we are often looking for such high-use items. Please call your local SAIL office for information on how to donate equipment. The Loan Closet requires your generous cash and equipment donations to survive, so thank you for serving future generations of individuals with temporary equipment needs.
