Devices to Make Daily Living Better.
Assistive Technology and Home Modifications
Assistive technology is any device or software that helps you continue to do daily tasks with more ease and independence. There are many different options to explore.
Changes around your home can make it safer and more comfortable. Items such as ramps, roll-in showers, lowered counters and lifts can help you do everyday activities more easily. Some changes are low-cost and easily made while larger changes may require a contractor.
Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS)
Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) are systems that connect you to medical help or emergency services. There are different types of PERS: they can be a bracelet or necklace with an emergency button, or systems that can track your location.
Cell Phone Access
A cell phone can perform many functions that make life easier. For older adults and people with disabilities, a cell phone can help you stay connected to important services and support.
