"You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life.  We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die."

Madawaska Valley Hospice Palliative Care (MVHPC) operates a used medical assistance equipment service.  Many area people have donated a variety of items that they no longer need to MVHPC.

There is no charge for this service.

The equipment is cleaned, stored, and monitored by staff and volunteers at MVHPC.  Equipment includes:

  • wheelchairs and transport wheelchairs
  • commode chairs
  • hospital beds
  • walkers
  • raised toilet seats
  • crutches and canes
  • bath benches and bath seats

As with any recycled equipment there will be some cost to keeping items in good working order. This program is gratefully supported by community donations.

In order to request a piece of equipment or donate items, please contact:

MVHPC Office at (613) 756-3045 ext. 350
