Durable Medical Equipment

Are you a resident of Chatham County and recently had surgery, broken a leg, or encountered some other reason you need to borrow durable medical equipment? We have donations from the community of things like walkers, shower chairs, potty chairs, canes, and more that we can lend until you’re back on your feet. Basically, if we’ve got it in the pharmacy, you can borrow it. Just treat it gently, clean it up, and return it when you’re done.

Accessing Prescription Services

In order to access our prescription services, you need to come to our office  in downtown Siler City, NC.  Before we can provide services, we will need to have the following:

  • a current prescription
  • proof of monthly household income, identity, and proof of residence

The application can be completed while in our office.
