Assistive technology for seniors is topic May 15

May 8, 2023

The Sussex County Advisory Committee on Aging & Adults with Physical Disabilities will meet at 10 a.m., Monday, May 15,  at the County Administrative Offices West Complex, 22215 N. DuPont Blvd., Georgetown.

Speaker Karen Latimer of the Delaware Assistive Technology Initiative will provide an overview of the various services her agency offers statewide, including a demonstration of numerous innovative assistive technology devices that DATI offers Delaware residents to use at home on a trial basis.

More than one in 10 Americans lives with limited mobility, making even seemingly routine, everyday tasks more challenging. But assistive technology can help those with physical challenges, whether the result of a lifelong disability, an accident, or natural aging, regain their independence, become less dependent on others and maintain productive lives.

The Sussex County Advisory Committee on Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities is an 11-member panel established by Sussex County Council to be an advocate for programs and policies that benefit older and disabled residents. The committee meets every other month, in January, March, May, July, September and November. All meetings are open to the public. Its mission is to increase dialogue, make recommendations to Sussex County Council, and give support, assistance and advice on significant issues and programs that may affect the lives of the county’s aging and adults with physical disabilities populations.
