Danbury Area Computer Society: using the iPad with dementia patients on July 11

The Danbury Area Computer Society will hold its July general meeting on July 11th, at 7:30pm.

At the July meeting, Ed Fitzgerald, digital marketing and technology consultant to small businesses, and a former DACS member, will speak on the subject of using the iPad with a person living with Dementia. Ed will describe the approach he developed to using the iPad after his wife, Diane, was  diagnosed with Frontotemporal degeneration, a dementia that produces “gradual, progressive decline in behavior and/or language.”  His goals were simple: Find a way to engage her in activities so they could enjoy their time together, stimulate her mind, elicit a response from her, get her to smile, laugh, bring her out of her shell and create moments of joy.


DACS General Meetings are free and open to the public. Members and prior attendees are encouraged to extend invitations to anyone interested in this topic.
General meetings are held at Danbury Hospital, in the Creasy Auditorium. There is plenty of free parking in the guest parking garage adjacent to the auditorium. (Go to www.dacs.org to find directions and parking information).
