Alice will share how an iPad and two apps, and now Alexa, can provide technology solutions to aid in day-to-day independent living.
Alice’s daughter, Kara, has been living a self-determined life, in her own house, for over 15 years with the use of a $1.99 app and an $18.99 app! Alice will tell their story and offer hints and tidbits of how you too can find “an app for that!” and ask Alexa “What can you do…”
