WESTPORT, Conn. -- Technology consultant Ed Fitzgerald will explain how to use iPads or other devices as tools for engaging family members with dementia Sunday at the Westport Library.

Fitzgerald, whose wife has frontotemporal dementia, looked for ways to use technology to help her. After some trial and error, he created a home screen of customized activities on the iPad combining apps, links, games, videos, pictures and more, which he uses as therapy tools.

Fitzgerald will demonstrate the process he created to personalize a set of activities.

The free session will be at 2 p.m. in the McManus Room. The Westport Library is at 20 Jesup Road.

For more information, call 203-291-4800, check out the library's website or e-mail Community Relations Director Kelle Ruden at kruden@westportlibrary.org.
