In this session, hear how one provider in Alaska has rapidly incorporated technology into their service model to empower people with disabilities to live more independently. Based in Juneau, REACH provides both services and advocacy to people with disabilities. Their overall goal is to ensure the people they serve and other fellow Alaskans are safe and are taken care of in the homes they want to be in.
Hear from them about how their clients’ concerns with medication compliance, cooking safety, and falls are being addressed through solutions with voice prompts, door sensors with real-time notifications, and wearable pendants. REACH is able to obtain data from the technology to give guardians and care coordinators more peace of mind, knowing that the people they care for are okay and can be checked on if there is a concern. As a result, people are living in the environment that is their first choice. Read about how they are doing it at REACH.
