LUNCHTIME WEBINAR: THURSDAY, MARCH 25, 2021, 12:00-1:00
In honor of MS Awareness Month, please join us for The Boston Home Institute webinar, Independence through Accessibility: Navigating the COVID-19 Pandemic with Assistive Technology, presented by EMD Serono on Thursday, March 25, 2021 from 12 to 1 pm.
The Boston Home is an innovative residence and resource for adults with multiple sclerosis and other advanced neurological disorders. From hand tremors and spasticity to voice or vision impairment, members of The Boston Home community face a range of challenges to independent operation of standard communication devices.
Learn how The Boston Home's Rehabilitation Therapists and Assistive Technologists have leveraged widely available devices to customize solutions for residents of The Boston Home. Residents will share how they have embraced assistive technology and learned new skills to help them stay connected to family and friends throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We seek to implement technologies that will help our residents, and that could be used outside The Boston Home, as well."
-Alex Burnham, Director of TBH Institute & Rehabilitation Services
