Remote Supports

Assistive Technology & Support for Persons with Disabilities

We use Remote Support Technology to promote independent living for individuals with disabilities. Remote Supports is an innovative system with a variety of technology options. This assistive technology supports individuals from an off-site location to empower community living without in-person staffing.

Remote Supports are best suited for individuals who can be virtually supported through technology with off-site staff available 24/7. Remote Support Services offers individuals with opportunities to learn and practice self-reliance and manage their activities of daily living on their own.

Renovations Program

Our Renovations Program serves individuals with co-occurring developmental disability, psychiatric disorder and/or significant behavioral challenges in a community-based setting.

Our team is committed to developing interpersonal connections through a supportive, community-based residential setting that meets the unique needs of each individual.

We assist individuals as they navigate the challenges that come with a co-occurring diagnosis. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that no one has to walk through life alone. Through developing relationships, we empower individuals to gain the confidence they need to build the life they wish to live.
