New England Assistive Technology (NEAT) Resource & Education Center

Oak Hill helps people with disabilities experience rich, fulfilling lives in their community. Through education, assistive technology, programs and advocacy, we support them at every stage of life. We also provide a robust array of services to those people who work with, live with, and care for, people challenged by disabilities. We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.

The NEAT Center at Oak Hill is a place to learn about the latest technologies, products, equipment and services that assist people with day-to-day activities that they have trouble doing themselves, either because of a disability or the effects of aging. It is also a place to donate or buy durable medical equipment.
