Assistive Technology

Thanks to a generous grant from The Jewish Fund, we are able to provide free Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS). These wearable call buttons send for assistance when pressed, making it possible for older adults to safely age in place.

We are also able to provide a variety of other assistive technology aids, including medication dispensers and sensors for stoves, doors and floors.

Vulnerable Jewish adults are eligible if they:

  • Are at least 60 years of age or living with a disability
  • Live independently
  • Reside in the tri-county metro Detroit area
  • Meet financial criteria
