I had no way of getting around and can't afford a wheelchair. Someone told me about Access Partnership and I called them and told them I needed a bariatric wheelchair. Two weeks later they called me back and said they had one free of charge! All I had to do was come get it. Thank you Access Partnership!

Access Partnership has truly been a blessing to me and myself clients. I was able to get all the necessary medical equipments and furnitures from people who had donated to this organization. Whenever I need anything from gloves to wheelchairs and hospital beds, they are just a phone call away. I even received a stair lift for one of myself clients at no cost to me or him.

Thank you Access Partnership for all that you do for our seniors and community.

I am a two time lung cancer survivor and suffer from COPD, so needless to say I have a difficult time breathing which means walking very far is out of the question. This doesn't mean I just want to sit home, so whenever I can, I get out of the house with the use of my electric wheelchair. This chair is such a blessing to have, I would be lost without it. I'm able to ride it to the few places around my house; which is definitely better than staying in the house all the time. But not being able to fold it up and put it in the car does limit the places I can go. Having heard good things about them but still knowing it was a long shot, I called Access Partnership in February of this year with the hopes they could help me get a vehicle wheelchair lift. I just simply can't afford anything like that. Unfortunately, but kind of expected, they didn't have one and could only offer to put me on a waiting list. In my mind this seemed like a lost cause, just being put on a list and that's it? Well to my amazement I received a phone call from them telling me they actually had a lift donated and if I was still in need I could come get it! I can't tell you how excited and happy I was to get this call. I went with my son to go pick it up and just had to give their employees hugs all around! I couldn't help myself! I am so very thankful to them, they kept their word and now I'll be on the go again like the energizer bunny! Thank you from the bottom of my heart Access, this means so much to me!

My insurance won't give me stuff I need, like a rollator walker and shower chair. Access Partnership did not have the items I needed when I called but said they would add me to a wait list and contact me. I figured I would be put on a list and never hear from them again. Another person forgotten in the system. But sure enough, Laura called me back within 2 weeks to let me know she had 2 of the 4 items I wanted. I couldn't believe it! I have faith Laura will call when someone donates the other items I need. Access Partnership is an organization that keeps promises and follows through!!

I don't have insurance and after a fall, suffered a bad break in my thigh. I called United Way for help and they referred me to Access Partnership. They were able to give me a wheelchair. It has been a blessing! Since I cannot put any weight on my leg, I would have been stuck and relying on everyone else. At least now I have some freedom.

My mom is wheelchair bound, but thankfully can still move form chair to chair. Access Partnership remembered we have been searching for a Bariatric Wheelchair, and today they were able to provide us with one! Which now means, instead of my mom being stuck in the house she can get out and go shopping with me or run little errands, just able to go do anything to get out of the house! I'm just so very excited for this weekend now, I'm defiantly taking her out lunch and who knows where else we might go, our options are endless thanks to you Access!

My husband has a history of strokes and suffers from immobility. He has now developed painful pressure sores. Access Partnership was able to provide us with a patient lift, to help move him around, and also an air mattress. This will keep him more comfortable and help with preventing more pressure sores. I only wish I found out about them sooner. Thank you Access Partnership!

After reading some of these reviews I just wanted to share a little bit of my experience with Access Partnership and how they helped me. To start with, I was my mothers primary care giver. She had numerous debilitating health problems, but was blessed with medical insurance that covered her needs. I seriously don't know what I would of done if she didn't have insurance to cover the massive amounts of supplies she required month to month, not to mention the medical equipment that was also needed. After she passed, I had so much on my plate, including a large amount of unused medical supplies and medical equipment that was now just sitting around taking up space. Unable to return anything to the suppliers, I was at a loss as to what to do with this stuff, throwing it out just seemed like such a waste to me. I know how much these things cost and just knew that there had to be someone somewhere that could use it, I just didn't know who or how to find them. So I did some research, and when I found Access Partnership, I was so excited knowing they could redistribute these medical supplies and equipment to people in need that couldn't otherwise afford them. Access, you are such a blessing to our community and only wish others were as compassionate and dedicated to helping those in need as you are. Thank You!

Sometimes I can afford my XXL adult diapers. Sometimes I can't. Access Partnership always helps me on those off months when I don't have enough to make ends meet and cover my butt (literally)! Thank you! Y'all are a blessing!!

We moved in with my dad to take care of him and found out how costly adult incontinence products can be. On his limited income he cannot afford them but between our help and the help from Access Partnership, we got him taken care of!
