Lending Closet

Elders and disabled persons in our community know that they can contact us when a need arises for items such as walkers or hospital beds that are needed but perhaps not affordable (subject to availability).

Our lending closet program maintains a rotating stock of durable medical goods that may be needed for a few weeks or even long term. The items are for an elder or disabled client’s personal use and are returned when no longer needed.

These items are all donated to TCOA by the citizens of the parish. If you have equipment that you no longer use, please donate it to our lending closet. If you are in need of any equipment please contact us at (985) 868-5546.

Some of the items that are available for use are:

  • Hospital beds
  • Shower chairs
  • Canes
  • Walkers
  • Bedside commodes

If there is an item that is needed, but not listed above, please call us. Unique items are donated from time to time and may be available.

Just a quick thanks for the wonderful collection of goods you delivered to us this past month. Such a thoughtful thing to do! I frequently saw we have the best council of all, and this gift verifies it. Once again, Thanks.

Thanks to Council on Aging. I know that this is little but I still want to thank you. The lunches you bring me mean so much. I have so many problems standing in one place to even cook a meal. I also want to thank you for my birthday gift. It was such a wonderful surprise. Thank you. I bless you all for the wonderful job you are doing. God bless you and keep you all safe. I love you all.

Just want to thank you for the most thoughtful gift basket for Mrs. I.S. on her 95th birthday. It really cheered her up and made her day extra special. Thanks also for the meals you provide and the courteous driver who delivers them everyday with always a smile and a kind word! It means a lot to those who are homebound. Again, thanks for all that you do.

On behalf of the Veterans of this area we wish to thank you for the assistance with hot meals for our homeless Veterans. You do so much for our seniors, but to help veterans too, goes above and beyond the call. Thank you again for your help. God Bless America and supporters like you.
