Project Self-Sufficiency Update -

Wheelchair Shortage - Huntington Beach Senior Services lends wheelchairs, walkers, and canes to Huntington Beach seniors or adult children. These medical aids can fulfill a temporary need to recover from an injury, a visit from an out-of-state relative, a special occasion where the walking involved is excessive, or a need of longer duration when Medicare doesn't cover the cost of a prohibitively expensive wheelchair. At this time, Senior Services needs more wheelchairs for their lending service in order to meet the demand. If you have a wheelchair gathering dust in your garage, please consider a tax-deductible donation. You can bring the wheelchair into the Outreach Center anytime Monday-Friday between 8:30 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. The center's address is 1718 Orange Avenue. Or call 714-960-2478 to arrange a pick-up.
