“iLink and the Neighborhood Network offer a novel and affordable model that can maximize independence, ensure privacy, and effectively deliver services to individuals in need.” - Florence D. Digennaro Reed, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Assistant Professor and Director of the Performance Management Laboratory, Department of Applied Behavioral Science, University of Kansas
“With the unique monitoring system and outstanding staff, I know that my son is safe and never far from help. The staff can keep an eye on him through the cameras, and he knows that and is comfortable with it. And all he has to do is call them on the intercom and say, ‘Hey, I want to do this,’ or ‘How do I do that?’ One day he put a puzzle together, and when he put in the last piece they came on over the TV and said, ‘Yay, great job!’ They’re there to celebrate things and also to help.” - Amy Madison, mother of a iLink customer
“The demographics in our country continue to change and the need for supportive services is increasing, while the available pool of caregivers is decreasing. It will be of paramount importance that we utilize technology more in an appropriate manner to keep individuals at home.” - Shawn Sullivan, Former Secretary for Kansas Department for Aging and Disability
“The thing that impresses me most about iLinkk is how it can improve the lives of so many in the broader definition of people with “special needs.” It can serve caregivers of people with a developmental disability, but it can also serve people like me and my wife as we get older, or my sister with dementia and her husband, and thousands of others who want to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.” - Paul Carleton, Chief Deputy Director (emeritus), California Department for Developmental Services
“iLink combines best practice technology with best practice support in ways that help people live independent and fulfilling live of their own choosing. This approach changes the paradigm of what is possible.” - Dr. Michael Strouse, President and CEO, Community Living Opportunities, Inc.
“The technology is what allows our residents to be independent, without us hovering over them all the time. They can call and ask for help, but they feel like they complete the task on their own. Most came here from other homes where they had staff around them all the time, and they’re so much happier like this.” - Erinn Bush, Home Coach, CLO, Inc.
