To alleviate adverse effects of the pandemic, the Oregon AT Program partnered with ADRC offices in three counties to provide technology and related services to seniors and individuals with disabilities using COVID relief funds.
During the year, participants received over 758 technology related services including computers, tablets, high-contrast keyboards, internet access, and in-person training services. This project allowed participants to connect virtually with family, friends, and their medical team. It also allowed participants to access community events. Now the AT Program is working with the ADRC at the state level to provide a similar Staying Connected through Technology Project statewide for the upcoming year.
