Using technology in supported accommodation

This study is investigating the extent to which electronic technology is being used by people living with disability in Victorian shared supported accommodation settings. The use of specialised technology such as communication aids, environmental control units and health monitoring technologies, as well as mainstream technology such as smart phones, computers and associated software were explored.

The study has found that access to electronic assistive technology and internet in supported accommodation settings can lead to positive psychosocial outcomes for residents, including increased independence, autonomy and ability to participate in social and recreational activities.
