Reader's Questions: Wheelchair Rentals

This reader needed to rent a wheelchair for her father. She wrote:

Q: Do you know of anyone with a wheelchair that we could borrow or hire? That would be so good...


Although we supplied her with a couple of rental suggestions, in the end she was able to find a wheelchair with the help of her hotel (the wonderful La Luna nel Porto). Marisa at La Luna directed the reader to the Stresa chapter of the Red Cross, and they were able to provide her with exactly what she needed. Now she has kindly written back, to share her information with us and pass it along to our readers, knowing that it is going to help others of you. She writes: ....
A: Just to report back that the wheelchair supplied by the Red Cross (based near the convention center/civic offices?) was superb -- brand new and perfect for the job as it folded up when on the boat or in restaurants. In the end it cost us a donation so I was very happy to give them 15 euros a day.


The Red Cross office spoken about is called the Croce Rossa di Stresa. The office is near the Palazzo dei Congressi, on Via Cigala Fulgosi in the center of Stresa, and they can be reached through their website: www.stresa.net/cri/.   
If that does not work for you for whatever reason, here are a couple of other resources to try: 

This company, Ortopedia, is in Verbania; they rent and sell many medical items. http://www.ortopediadurso.com/prestazioni-e-servizi

This is a large supply company in Torino that rents many medical needs. They may be able to arrange for delivery of certain items to Stresa: .lupo-medicosanitari.it 


In general, Stresa makes every attempt to be very wheelchair accommodating. But if you have specific concerns it is best to check with your hotel or accommodations regarding your specific needs.
