G60 Technology Tools for Independence
Meghan O’Sullivan, RN, M.S.,
At Home Technologies
The future is here! Technology, properly utilized, can be a powerful tool to foster independence while providing needed supports and safeguards. This workshop will profile assistive technologies that support common challenges including medication management, cooking safety, general safety at home, prompting, scheduling, floods, falls, managing chronic diseases, assisting with travel, and those all-important apps. Understanding what technology can and can’t do in providing least restrictive supports is critical in creating desired outcomes. We will also cover troubleshooting and the importance of a back-up plan.
