Our blueprint for independent living

Every builder knows that a lasting home starts with a carefully-considered plan. From the foundation to the shingles, it’s the blueprint that holds firm as time goes on. This is our blueprint for independent living, and how we build our house to be your family’s home.

 

At its core, the Neighborhood Network (NN) combines the foundation of a well-selected neighborhood with the personalized technology of iLink and professional next-door neighbors.

Watch the NN come to life.

The Neighborhood Network

The Neighborhood Network is a new service model that promotes independence for seniors and those with I/DD. It fuses 24/7 peace of mind with personalized care right when needed, thereby reducing costs and allowing those with barriers to independent living to experience meaningful and satisfying lives in their own homes. The NN offers a superior alternative to assisted living or traditionally staffed group homes that is sustainable, affordable, and inclusive.

Vibrant Village

Well-selected neighborhood

We select our neighborhoods intentionally, as they are the foundation for our service model. Our housing partners are supportive, innovative, and compassionate.

iLink

iLink technology

iLink Remote Support offers personalized tech solutions. iCoaches (key staff) are familiar with residents & provide a virtual presence in each home by: (1) remotely monitoring and supporting health, behavioral, and safety needs, (2) controlling home automations, (3) deploying & supervising in-home help. iLink also connects health care, behavioral, and social work professionals to each home.

Professional Neighbors

Professional Neighbors are caregivers who permanently live in the neighborhood they support and are available 24/7 to assist as needs arise. Professional Neighbors are deployed and supervised by iLink, ensuring delivery of the best and safest care. Fundamentally, the NN is a dynamic combination of volunteers, iLink, and Professional Neighbors.
