Assistive technology and home modifications make life easier when best suited to your unique needs and goals.
Assistive Technology and Home Modifications
This is any tool, device, software or system that improves, maintains or increases a person's function and independence. There are a range of low-tech and high-tech devices and equipment to explore.
This can be anything that increases the safety and accessibility of a home including things like ramps, roll-in showers, lowered counter tops and lifts. Some modifications are low-cost and easily made while more sophisticated modifications may require a professional contractor.
Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS):
These systems provide access to help 24-hours a day, seven days a week, usually at the touch of a button. They can range from simple wearable accessories to an advanced network of monitors and sensors.
Cell Phone Access:
A smartphone is capable of performing a wide range of services that can make your life easier. For older adults and people with disabilities, a cell phone is another way to access vital services and supports.
