The mission of iLink Support Technologies is to empower people with a range of challenging support needs to live as independently as possible in their homes.
iLink uses breakthrough smart technologies to connect the homes of special need customers with a remote team of support professionals who know them well and provide the help needed to live as independently as possible.
iLink “connected” homes allow Remote Personal Coaches to:
- Continuously monitor each customer’s needs for support in a variety of ways;
- Remotely and personally provide coaching and help tailored to individuals in need;
- Control home automations to provide help and ensure safety;
- Deploy help of any kind, on demand, for as long as necessary;
- Remotely supervise deployed in-home staff to assure the best and safest care possible.
