The ALS Society of BC is dedicated to providing direct support to ALS patients, along with their families and caregivers, to ensure the best quality of life possible while living with ALS. Through supporting research, we are committed to finding the cause of, and cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). As a provincial partner of the ALS Society of BC, HME processes orders for the the equipment loan program and inventory on behalf of the ALS Society of BC.

ALS Equipment Loan Process

Prescribing therapists must request loans by submitting the ALS Assistive Equipment Prescription form to equipmentloan@alsbc.ca. If you are an ALS patient, please contact your therapist to access this program. All loans must be handled by a therapist (prescription). HME as the subcontractor of ALS will fulfill these orders once ALS sends the forms to HME. HME cannot process any requests without this. Each loan request must have a completed form before HME can proceed with the order.
