I connected with the super inspiring Anne Edmondson, whose son Jake is on the Autism spectrum. Just an amazing woman with an amazing philosophy on life. It was encouraging to hear how Xfinity technologies have helped her and her son navigate a path to independance. Jake lived at home with mom, but when he showed an interest in gaining more independance, Anne found a way to use her Xfinity Home system and security camera to allow Jake to be at home without her. She realized she could check in on Jake using the Xfinity Home app on her cell phone when she was at work. Having that connection gave her peace of mind and gave Jake the independence he desperately wanted. You can watch Anne and Jake’s story HERE.
