NSC Flyer“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.

After 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.”

The seminar is sponsored by the Norwalk Senior Center Dementia Caregiver Support Group.
