14 Apr Specialized Equipment Swap for Children
We are excited to announce that this month the Physical Therapists of Carolina Pediatric Therapy will be hosting a service event. As therapists, we recognize the cost burden for families regarding the cost of specialized equipment.
We wanted to address those needs by hosting an equipment swap day at our Asheville clinic (address below). Families and caregivers who are looking to make space in their home or get rid of equipment they no longer need can have a place to donate the equipment to and also a place where they might be able to look for a piece of equipment they might need. We will be recruiting volunteers from National Seating and Mobility to make adjustments to equipment as needed and hoping to serve our families in our surrounding community of Western North Carolina.
Equipment such as chairs, floor sitters, walkers, crutches, standers, wheelchairs, positioning devices and other modified play equipment or mobility devices.
Carolina Pediatric Therapy’s physical therapists will be present to facilitate the process of exchange, but if you’d like to volunteer we can always use a helping hand! We are inviting National Seating and Mobility to help with any repairs, and we will have a pressure washer to clean equipment as well.
Let your families know about this great event! If you have questions, please call us at (828) 670 8056.
Time: April 29, 12pm to 3pm
Location: Carolina Pediatric Therapy’s Asheville Clinic
