Hi. I am about to purchase an iPad for our facility and I was wondering if anyone has any tips about purchasing a cover for it that is resident and in particular, residents living with dementia, friendly!
I have searched the net but only come up with overseas companies selling for handicapped people.

Hi karin, I have n iPad for our residents, we have purchased a iPad pillow it is great and sits inside then residents are able to have on knees without feeling they will drop it. We purchased them from our local variety store, also purchased stylus pens this makes it easier for them to use as their fingers do not touch screen. Another connection is a lightening adaptor and HDMI cable which connects iPad to t.v. This mirror images the iPad for group sessions. Our residents love it. Hope this helps.
