Managing a home independently can be challenging for a person with a disability. There are many types of assistive technology that can help a person with limitations be more independent in their homes.
- Many of the devices we have in the home have small, hard to see, or hard to reach controls. Adding remote control, and especially remote controls with larger, easier to see and use buttons can help.
- A person with a disability may need to perform basic home activities remotely. Some kinds of activities can be automated, so removing the demands. Or, a person can see who is at the door, and unlock the door, from across the room.
- Often the safety of a person with a disability can be enhanced with assistive technology, reducing that persons anxiety as well as that of their families.
