Hear how UW students will be leaving the campus to help people live independently in their homes, thanks to an innovative program developing at UW’s world class research facility – The Institutes for Discovery. This program, inspired by the Affordable Care Act, will look at ways technology being developed at The Institutes for Discovery plus community agencies and students can work together to preserve the safety and independence of seniors and the disabled in their home environments.
On this All About Living program, Matthew Weed and Nancy Mathews describe a new partnership with community agencies that will send UW students into the homes of seniors and people in need of help. It’s a real world classroom for students and an opportunity to make a real difference in peoples’ lives.
