Creative Use of Technology in Community Supportive Living Chris Patterson with Guest Presenter Tracy King
Mission To deliver quality in-home support, using technology while becoming a valuable and meaningful part of people’s lives… …offering independence with creative solutions.
Overview Different Technology Utilized Overview of Sound Response/Night Owl Real Examples of Using Remote Monitoring in the Community
Our Philosophy and Goals of Technology? To Overcome Barriers (Decreasing Budgets and Staff Shortages) Inclusion/Normalization (Live Safely in the Community) Independence (Living in Smaller Settings) Improve Quality of Life So why not use technology to provide residential supports?
Types of Technology People Use in the Home Personal Support Technology PERS Systems Smart Homes Remote Monitoring
Personal Support Technology Common Household Items: Coffee Pot, TV Remote Control, Iron, Alarm Clocks, Microwave, Thermostat, Cameras Computers/Ipads, Tablets Wheelchairs Communication Devices Buses, cars CELL PHONES
Smart Homes Entire Home has Sensing Devices Expensive/Hard to Move Good Testing Ground for New Sensors and Data Collection Imagine! -Boulder Colorado
PERS Personal Emergency Response System Ratio 1 Monitor to 20,000 People Supported Not Individualized-Use of Standard Procedures Good For Only Emergencies
Types of Remote Monitoring Standard PERS (Personal Emergency Response System) Sensor Based System Video Based System Live Monitoring vs. Alerts
Remote Monitoring Involves Three Components: Technology in the Home Monitoring from an Offsite Central Monitoring Station Response (from either a paid residential staff person, volunteer/natural support person or a family member)
Monitoring Professional Monitors Communication with Staff/individuals served Live Monitoring Hours 9pm-7am Individual Protocols and Support Plans Notifications to cell phones and /or email 24 hr/day Reports/Data Tracking
Equipment Features Completely Wireless in the Home Phone Line with Cellular Back-up 2-Way Communication Data Tracking Smart Sensors Portable and Adaptable to People’s Homes and Abilities
Sensors Personal Pagers Door/Window Security Sensors Smoke Detectors Carbon Monoxide Detectors Flood/Moisture Sensors Motion Sensors Other Sensors Available Upon Request
Process of Receiving Supports Referral Team Meeting/Education of NOSS to person/Family/Team Individual Assessment Environmental Assessment Installation Trial Period Ongoing Evaluation
Responding Professional Responders, Natural Supports or Family Members Trained in General Responses and Individually Tailored Supports When Needed Emergency Types of Supports or More Predictive Types of Supports Responders location to persons home
Collaboration Brainstorm with Agencies Meet with Agencies, Teams and Guardians Develop Efficient Support Structures Ongoing Evaluation of Services
Considerations Video Cameras vs. Sensor Based System Third Party Access vs. Reports Live Monitoring vs. Alerts Independence vs. Restrictions Remote Monitoring System vs. System of Supports Redundancy within systems
What Makes SR/NOSS Unique? Besides Live Remote Monitoring, SR/NOSS services are a comprehensive and integral part of the person’s interdisciplinary team. We provide oversight, ongoing evaluation of supports and provides the team with up to date information and evaluation of a person’s activities. Also, extended beyond Remote Monitoring, we assist with the design, development and oversight of the responding component of Remote Monitoring services. This is a value added assurance that cares are being completed professionally and as agreed by the person’s team.
