Do you know of an Iowan with a dis­abil­i­ty over the age of 18 or a per­son over the age of 60 who is expe­ri­enc­ing social iso­la­tion and of which assis­tive tech­nol­o­gy may be of help to them?

East­erseals may be able to assist with pro­vid­ing a device to assist with social isolation.

This ser­vice is avail­able to per­sons in all 99 coun­ties, regard­less of their income level.

Fund­ing is lim­it­ed and time sen­si­tive. East­erseals team mem­bers can assist with deter­min­ing which device will work best for the indi­vid­ual, along with pro­vide some ini­tial training.
