I’ll be talking about my experience as a caregiver using the iPad to engage and communicate with my wife, at a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association at the Arden Courts in Hamden on September 17th, 5:30 – 7:30pm. 

Here is the announcement from Arden Courts. The event is open to the public.

Pasta“Join us for this event in which all proceeds will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association’s 2015 Memory Walk. Delicious pasta dinners donated by Sapori d’Italia in Hamden and Michaelangelo Pizza & Subs in West Haven will be served for $10.00 donation per person. You can either dine in or take dinner home with you. There will also be a discussion with guest speaker Ed Fitzgerald regarding how families (grandchildren, children or adults) can interact with their loved ones with Alzheimer’s/dementia using iPad screen activities and applications.
