Description : 

Sometimes called assistive devices, independent living aids, and adaptive equipment, assistive technolopy (AT) can help your loved one live more independently. It may also make your job as a caregiver easier and more enjoyable.

If you’re caring for someone with dementia, you may be worried about their falling, wandering, or getting lost. Certain types of AT can help. A loved one with a physical or cognitive (thinking) impairment can use AT to make the activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, grooming, eating, and toileting a little easier.

This fact sheet describes different types of AT that may be helpful to you and your loved one. In addition, it addresses how to find AT, how to pay for devices, and how to decide what devices or home modifications you might need.
