for in Home Support
Our assistive technology provides a safe, cost effective alternative to supporting individuals in their own homes. Our clients enjoy a safe, independent and respectful home environment.
Base Station -- This is the main panel for all of the sensors. This can be plugged in somewhere out of sight. All of the sensors are wireless!
Door Sensors -- These sensors can be used for doors, windows, cabinets, refrigerators, medication boxes, etc. This allows us to know when that door has opened so we can respond according to the parameters the team has set.
Motion detectors -- This motion sensor allows us to know which rooms the individual is in and if the individual gets up at night. For instance we could track how long the individual is in the restroom so we can respond as needed.
Bed sensors -- This sensor is placed either under the mattress cover or between the mattress and box springs. This allows us to know when the individual vacates their bed so we can monitor the situation and follow the team's parameters on the type of response needed.
Toilet Mat Sensors -- This sensor is placed at the base of the toilet. This allows us to know how long the individual is on the toilet so we can monitor the situation and follow the team's parameters on the type of response needed. This allows us to identify times the individual may be sick and needs additional assistance/supports.
Panic Sensors -- This sensor can be worn by the individual. This button allows individuals to have direct access to our Overnight Monitoring Support Staff. When this is pressed we will call the individual immediately to see how we can assist them.
Carbon Monoxide -- This sensor will detect Carbon Monoxide so we can immediately support the person in evacuating and we will call emergency personnel for them.
Chair Sensor -- This sensor is placed on a chair or couch. This allows us to know when the individual vacates the chair so we can monitor the situation and follow the team's parameters on the type of response needed.
Smoke/Heat Sensor -- This sensor will detect smoke and heat so we can immediately support the person in evacuating and we will call emergency personnel for them.
Incontinence Sensor -- This sensor will alarm our Overnight Monitoring Support Staff if the individual is incontinent so we can respond accordingly.
2getherTech Assistive Technology was developed by a group of individuals who have served individuals with IDD living in the Community for many decades. In partnership with a technology organization, the innovative idea of merging services was formed.
2getherTech Assistive Technology piloted with an organization providing Individualized Supported Living services. Technology sensors were placed directly in each home with a variety of options, including bed, motion, smoke detector, door, image, and panic buttons. For 15 months information was gathered and assessed by our Professional Staff to ensure the people being served and the technology used were safe and effective. Every individual was evaluated prior to installation during a Personal Planning Meeting to assess the type of support required. Weekly Support Plans are documented and evaluated based on the specific activity within the home.
It is our mission to continue to improve the safety and independence of all individuals served.
