Brooks-Howell will have a Christmas Open House on Friday December 14th from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. to celebrate the opening of our Community Medical Clinic and Medical Equipment Loan Closet at 266 Merrimon Avenue in Asheville for seniors over the age of 65. All are welcome to attend. Guests may bring a toy for St. Paul’s United Methodist Church’s Bear Closet.
 
The Medical Equipment Loan Closet will be open to all United Methodist Church members and others in the community who need medical equipment but who are unable to afford it or do not have insurance. The Loan Closet will offer a vast array of durable medical equipment free of charge to seniors facing recovery from illness, accident or who are otherwise in need of such equipment on a short-term basis.  These items include wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, shower chairs, canes, tub transfer benches and more.  
 
In addition, the Community Medical Clinic will be open to all United Methodist Church members and others over the age of 65 targeting those who are under insured or non-insured. This service will enable seniors to see a geriatric-trained practitioner who understands the needs of the aging adult. A sliding payment scale will be offered to seniors who otherwise may not be able to afford the services. The Clinic will also have an on-site pharmacist to assist in medication education and medication review.
