Remote supports is a service available to Ohioans. It uses electronic equipment to support and assist people with developmental disabilities in their home. This service is provided from an off-site location, typically using home and community based waivers to fund the cost and maintenance of equipment and staff.
Here’s a video that describes this service in more detail.
