Technology Tuesday

Last Friday, February 26, Simply Home provided an overview and training of the remote supports technology that will be used in Imagine!’s upcoming Tuneberg Remote Supports Project. This project’s goal is to help individuals in the community live safe and productive lives with the assistance of technology. The training provided a brief background and overview of the process and a demonstration of the technology being used.

Two years ago Aaron Tuneberg died at the age of 30, the result of a violent and senseless act. Aaron was on a waiting list for services but that did not stop him from connecting with his community and making an impact on all those he touched. Aaron’s mother, Gale Boonstra, has continued this legacy by working diligently to turn tragedy into opportunity. To help reach that vision, Gale and her family have established Aaron’s Fund to support projects in Aaron’s community that will provide safety, independence, and camaraderie for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Imagine!’s Tuneberg Remote Supports Project is being funded through Aaron’s Fund.

Below is a PowerPoint presentation from the training.

Here are a few pictures from the event.
