The Illinois Department on Aging has collaborated with AMD providers to produce a short video on each AMD unit for which they are certified by IDoA. Each video is closed captioned, and the links are listed separately below. The videos demonstrate each unit's unique features and different functions which may aid in choosing the most beneficial AMD unit.
