Supported Independent Living

As many Providers create more independent living options for their clients, technology is becoming an important component of the care plan. Technology addressing cooking safety (stoves), incontinence detectors, medication dispensers, and passive sensors confirming the activities of daily living, help support independence. Clients with the capacity and desire to live more independently, can be supported 24/7, while still performing independent activities that build self esteem and represent meaningful victories for clients long dependent on constant care.
