About Us

Changing Hands is a program of UCP Central PA that provides restored and refurbished home medical equipment and assistive technology devices and aids to Pennsylvania residents who are unable to obtain the necessary equipment through any other means.


If your insurance does not cover certain equipment, or if you have an immediate need but must wait out a grace period before coverage commences, Changing Hands can help.

Our staff works with local Area Agencies on Aging and other human service organizations to provide a seamless system of support for individuals and families who might benefit from such equipment… either at home, at school, at work, or at play. Plus, we have a certified Assistive Technology Specialist on hand to offer demonstrations and to assist you in determining what equipment best meets your needs.

A partial listing of the types of equipment and devices we exchange includes:

  • walkers
  • hoyer lifts
  • bath seats and toilet seats
  • transfer benches and transfer boards
  • manual and power wheelchairs
  • daily living aids (eating, dressing, etc.)
  • adapted telephones
  • communications devices
  • assistive listening devices
  • blind/low vision aids
  • stair glides
  • canes and crutches
  • adaptive games, toys, and recreational devices
  • and more!
