iPad for Dementia Caregivers Presentation

Date: Saturday, March 28th, 10-11am
Location: Arden Courts, 45 South Road, Farmington, CT

Keeping a person with dementia engaged in activities can be very challenging. Ed Fitzgerald, a technology consultant, whose wife has a rare form of dementia called Frontotemporal Degeneration, looked for ways to use technology to help her.

After some trial and error, he focused on the iPad and created a home screen of activities combining, apps, links, games, videos, pictures and more, that he uses when they are together.

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 advice on how to proceed if someone is interested in pursuing it with their loved one.
