Independent Living

Technology for Living works with people who have severe physical disabilities and helps them to live as well and as independently as possible.

Your needs and your feedback will guide the services we provide to you. We will listen, use the expertise and creativity of our staff to support you, and provide physical resources, such as equipment and supplies. We will do our best to respond to your calls or emails as quickly as possible, and provide excellent service and support.

Once you have become a member of Technology For Living, we can assist by: attending discharge planning meetings, working with your care team, assessing your equipment needs, connecting you with a Technology For Living peer who knows about the discharge process, and doing in-home assessments to set up your technological needs.

If you are living in a care or rehabilitation facility, and want to move into the community, the discharge process can be very challenging. Technology for Living can work with you to facilitate your transition to living in the community.
