The Connecticut Masters' Games and AARP CT are providing a FREE seminar on the profound impact smart technology can have on the lives of EVERYONE, but especially individuals with disabilities or those who are aging in place. Mainstream technologies can be used to dramatically increase one’s independence and success in their quest to live at home as long as possible. This can be done in the way that the technology was intended and designed, but the NEAT Center at Oak Hill will demonstrate unique approaches to placement of smart tech throughout the house for empowering people to live their best life.
You can see the technology in action in the New England Assistive Technology Center at Oak Hill’s fully equipped, Smart Home on Wheels (SHOW) mobile demonstration center. Tours will be given throughout the event and health and wellness providers from the Greater New Britain area will be on site for the Wellness Fair.
