Implementation

The Implementation

From initial conversations to building a plan tailored to the individual, members of the team have all weighed in to come up with a plan for utilizing technology solutions that will best support the person served. With funding secured, the time has now come to put that plan to work.

Implementing technology supports to fulfill an individual's support plan involves not only setting up the physical technology infrastructure, but the training of all individuals involved as well—providers (staff, managers), case managers, families, and self-advocates. This will help ensure all involved are comfortable using the technology and understand the support and response procedures in place.

Rethinking Accessibility

The thinking is changing around what “accessible” can mean and the role technology can play. Individuals, their families, providers, and case managers are all looking to technology supports to assist individuals (and the staff that help support them) reach their full potential.

 

The Implementation for Case Managers

From initial conversations to exploring individual technology support options, the team (providers, families, self advocates, and case managers) has worked diligently and thoughtfully to build a plan that focuses on the needs and wishes of the individual supported—both their safety and security as well as desired lifestyle goals.

Now that the technology supports have been assessed and agreed upon, it is time to physically put the solutions in place and move forward with their utilization.

“Alexa, Turn on My Lights.”

The ability to control one’s environment by voice is a perk for some people, but a life changing opportunity for many with disabilities. Just ask Val, whose use of Echo devices and assistive technology sparked further discussions and adoption at The Phoenix Residence, Inc. She’ll gladly tell you about her current technology and how it helps her feel more “like an adult”.
