“Using the iPad with People with Dementia” Seminar at the Wilton Library

Here is an announcement of a seminar I will be doing at the Wilton Library on August 18th from 6 to 7PM.

The library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Road and the seminar will take place in the Presidents Room on the second floor.

“Keeping a person with dementia engaged in activities can be very challenging. Ed Fitzgerald, a technology consultant whose wife is living with Frontotemporal Dementia, looked for ways to use technology to help her.

Wilton FlyerAfter some trial and error, he began using the iPad and created a home screen of activities combining, apps, links, games, videos, pictures and more, which he uses when they are together.

During this seminar, Ed will demonstrate how he uses the iPad, the process by which he created a customized set of activities that are of interest to his wife and offer advice on how to proceed if someone is interested in pursuing it with their loved one.

While he uses an iPad, some of what he talks about applies to a Kindle and Nook as well.”
