Welcome to MoAT!

November is National Caregivers Month

Each day in Missouri, thousands of our fellow residents work long hours as caregivers to meet the needs of their family members with a disability or their aging parents. During National Caregivers Month, Missouri Assistive Technology wants to recognize each of you for your generosity, faith and compassion.

We also want you to be aware that assistive technology can play an important role in lightening your responsibilities and helping your address the barriers you and your family member might face. From services such as information and referral and device demonstrations, to programs to help you acquire assistive technology like our device re-utilization and Show-Me Loans Program, our services are here to help you provide the best care possible.

 

Missouri Assistive Technology strives to increase access to assistive technology for Missourians with all types of disabilities, of all ages. To the right are navigation links to the programs and services of MoAT.
