The Smart Support Initiative is a partnership that On Site Services has entered into with Community Living Essex County, University of Windsor, and Imagine Smart Homes of Colorado as reported by the Ontario Government Ministry of Community and Social Services. Other valued partnerships are also in consideration and will be officially announced at a later date.
Peter Blanken, President of On Site Services, sits on the steering committee for this local Smart Support Initiative and has personally toured some of Imagine Smart Homes flagship locations in Colorado. With our partners in Windsor/Essex County the hopes is to have this technology and these homes in place in our community in the near future. The Smart Support Initiative being headed up locally by Community Living Essex County is 1 in only 6 projects picked by the Ontario government.
Smart Support is about using technology such as smart phones, tablets, apps, software and mobile devices to help people receiving supports and services to live more independently.
