Up with the times! Love how the use of tech is used for GOOD. I love how Mark shares how they navigated tech's boundaries and tool of empowerment... no attachment needed, no hovering, etc. Love how tech can foster independence and empowerment for the whole family and caregivers. If I attend, I look forward to the possible plans! Thank you for all that you do....and you are not alone!

Thank you Mark and welcome to your first NCC, you will love it! It is so important for us to hear perspectives from both men & women who serve as carers. I love your - how can home automation & tech help in a caregiving situation from your personal experiences with your son.. I do hope you'll share the story of your guitars, too!

As a fellow parent of a child with severe disabilities I am so excited to see Mark's presentation and learn of what he has created to enhance their lives and the lives of their son!!

Applying tech to the caregiving journey - so much to learn. And a likelihood of snow in the November forecast!

I enjoyed Mark's positive approach to caregiving technology. It does take thoughtfulness and commitment to improve your life and the life of your loved one to experiment with new home care technology. Mark's positive coping attitude is an inspiration to all caregivers.
