We’ve covered a lot of ground with our Quest For the GoodLife with Dr. Mike Strouse series. Now we want to show you how it all works together. You and your organization have a standing invitation to come and visit us in person, or we can always do a virtual meet and greet. Until then, here is a Bonus Episode of the Quest For the GoodLife where Mike and members of our team take you on a virtual tour of the Neighborhood Network with iLink and our Applied Technology Center, where technology-leveraged services models are redefining what’s possible.

History is on Our Side

GoodLife serves as an industry leader and has spent more than 40 years developing highly innovative service models integrated with technologies for individuals with disabilities alongside our partners from the University of Kansas Department of Applied Behavioral Science. We have been comfortable with working virtually since we launched iLink in 1999. Now, due to COVID-19 and the ongoing labor crisis, our work is more important than ever.

It’s Time for Next Generation Services

Remember, we don’t believe that traditional services offer a sustainable long-term solutions. Needs ebb and flow throughout the day and night, but staffing "just in case" is expensive, intrusive, and doesn’t empower independence.

There is no doubt that the next generation of care will be services leveraged and enriched by technologies, and this is our sweet spot. We know providers need a better way to deliver support on-demand so people can live happier, healthier, more independent and more inclusive lives in their own homes.

The iLink infrastructure along with well-designed service approaches will actually expand and improve human services. GoodLife does this by weaving support organically, so that help becomes an amenity of the neighborhood. iLink Assist allows us to filter out unnecessary intrusions, focus on emerging needs, and deliver life-coaching, in-home help, or automated help when needed. This cultivates greater self-determination, choice and individualized support (along with improved safety 24/7), all while managing costs.
