Assistive Technology and Home Modifications

Assistive technology and home modifications make life easier when best suited to your unique needs and goals.

Assistive Technology:
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.
Home Modifications:
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.
