High-tech Empowers Residents at Halifax Nursing Homes

Residents of the Northwood long-term care home in Halifax's north end have been benefiting from technological innovations in assisted living facilities. The Canadian non-profit organization runs two such facilities and has more than 600 residents. Despite being a quadriplegic and needing to get around in a motorized wheelchair, the Halifax resident Jacklyn Carter said she feels more independent than she has in years. It's all thanks to a smart speaker that allows her to control the electronics in her bedroom via voice command.

The Canadian facilities have been working hard to use technology to help give people back a measure of independence, cut down on staff injuries and free up more time for employees to take care of people's medical needs.
