Training Overview Description

We will explore the wondrous capabilities in the world of assistive technology. Find out how enabling technology can help bring dreams to reality. FeelSafe Technology Consulting, LLC is an Alaska based consultant company that takes great pride in having the ability to assess and provide technology. We do this in order to improve quality of life and allow people to live as independently as possible. We are one of the chosen vendors for the Home Modification and Enabling Technology program currently ran through SILC. We will discuss the benefit of assistive technology and how it can be extremely cost effective to not only providers but to waivered services in general. We work hard to create a safe and helpful environment.

We want to show our fellow Alaskans that they do have options. There are products and services out there that can assist them in having a choice to remain at home, have assistance meeting their goals and live by their own terms.

Products will be demonstrated so participants can see how they work and how natural supports and providers can benefit from the use of technology. We will discuss real life scenarios and how the data collected from technology can be used and implemented in a person’s plan of care. In addition, we will discuss funding options for families and providers, how that process works, and what you need to increase your chances for approval.
