12:00p: Community Connections Manager | 12:30p: HomeSmart Assistant

12:00-12:30 Eastern | Community Connections Manager
Supporting people in their own homes is only half of the equation for anyone living in a community. Sometimes, the really difficult task is in finding opportunities to connect in the community with the things you find interesting, close to home. The Community Connections Manager is software developed by the Fairfield County Board of DD that tracks the interest and needs of the people we serve, as well as thousands of connections in our community. Using a variety of methods we can find common interests and view all of the information on a live map. The result is help in finding friends, social groups, and employers who value people for who they are and the contributions they can make.

12:30-1:00 Eastern | HomeSmart Assistant
The HomeSmart Assistant was developed and is offered by CVI Medical. They have been providing durable medical and mobility equipment to the elderly, disabled and otherwise physically challenged patients for over 20 years. They understand this population and their needs for in-home independence - and the HomeSmart Assistant is their assistive technology answer.
