Remote Supports and Monitoring

You may have heard about Remote Monitoring and Assistive Technologies, but do you know how they can benefit you or your loved one? Remote Support, also known as Remote Monitoring, is an emerging service that combines technology and direct care to support people with developmental disabilities. It uses two-way communication in real time, including home-based sensors, cameras and other devices, to provide a less invasive means of monitoring and responding to the needs of individuals living in the community.
