While technology can never replace human support, it can certainly help to increase independence and decrease the need and expense for 'just in case' supports.


Join John Amber Amstrong, Housing Navigator for the DSO Central West Region, for a presentation on technology to promote independence. You will learn about:

-the various types of technological assistance available today

-how others have used technology to increase independence and reduce support costs.


You are encouraged to arrive early to pick up information before the session starts; meeting room doors will be open at 6:30pm.

Workshop location is at The Family Centre room 2015 and is presented by the Waterloo Region Family Network and DSO.
