ASSISTIVE Now Serves Minnesota!

Fargo Home First
ASSISTIVE now serves people with disabilities and those experiencing the effects of aging in Minnesota. Thanks to a recent partnership with MN STAR, the Minnesota State Assistive Technology Act Program, we can provide assistive technology (AT) demonstrations and loans to Minnesotans at no charge.

An inventory of equipment available for loan and demonstration can be found on our AT4All website.  Just type in the name of a piece of equipment you are looking for in the search engine. Make sure you choose either of the following two programs: ASSISTIVE Fargo or ASSISTIVE Mandan. If you want to reserve a device for loan, you can create an account and start the loan process or contact us at 1-800-895-4728 or info@ndassistive.org for assistance.  If you would like to meet with one of our AT consultants for an equipment demonstration, please contact us to schedule an appointment.

ASSISTIVE can also provide AT assessments, consultations, and trainings on a fee-for-service basis in our office, on-site, and via video conferencing. Please contact us for specific details.
