Network on Environments, Services and Technologies (NEST)

The Network on Environments, Services and Technologies (NEST) brings together professionals working with older adults who have lifelong and late-life physical, sensory and/or cognitive disabilities and whose ability to function independently is threatened or compromised. We share a common goal: maximizing functional capacity and promoting independence for elders through appropriately designed environments, services and technologies. NEST members share information across the aging, disability and rehabilitation systems about:

  • Assistive technology
  • Environmental modification
  • Transportation and older driver issues
  • Emerging technologies to promote aging in place
  • Policy issues and trends
  • Universal design of products, private residences and community public spaces
  • Consumer and provider education through distance learning
  • Emergency preparedness and community resilience

NEST contributes to ASA’s programs, education events and activities through the following avenues:
