Sheepskin Program

Medical grade Sheepskin is an Australian product (always dyed green) that reduces friction and regulates body temperature to promote blood flow and healing of pressure ulcers, diabetic wounds, and other chronic sores. GPPCS collects community donations of “medical grade” sheepskins and “Skinsan” cleaning solutions and loans them to individuals vulnerable to pressure-related wounds.

There is no cost to borrow our Sheepskin at any time. We want to be able to provide this service to anyone in the community who can benefit from it. We do however ask that it be washed and returned to us when it is convenient for you and your loved ones. (We supply the solution and directions for it to be washed at your own discretion.)

We offer many types for every individual need including full-bed, wheelchair seat, boots, and gloves.
