Feridean Commons is committed to the safety of our residents as well as making them feel at home.  We understand the importance of feeling connected to people and having knowledge of what is going on in the community.  We were very excited to implement a type of technology to give you the comfort of home and piece of mind that if you need something, help is at your fingertips.  

CATIE

(Communication and Access To Information Everywhere)

Keeping your independance is easy with the CATIE system which you can access at anytime on your free iPad.  Not technically savvy?  No problem!  The system is easy to use. With the click of a button, you have access to all of the day's information to make you feel connected to your neighbors, your home and your environment.  Want to send an email but have a difficult time typing?  Simply speak what you want to say in your email using the voice to text feature.  Our residents use this technology to stay active, engaged and connected to the world around them for the best quality of life.
