Early Implementations

When first thinking about incorporating Smart Assistive Technology in your community care services before making any purchasing decisions it is important to firstly consider the implications for – • Your existing service model, • The workforce development considerations of your agency, • The range of new or revised policies and procedures required, • The financial and funding considerations including return on investment, • Maintenance, repair and replacement policies including considering if a client wants to hold on to the technology after the service is ceased.
