All too often we hear of the effect that being socially isolated has on elderly veterans. When they are not connected to the online world, they also tend to be worse off financially. The RNA’s Project Semaphore has distributed hundreds of iPads to veterans preloaded with useful apps and familiarisation training.
In enabling veterans to do the things most of us find second nature (for instance, Skyping family and friends, internet banking and shopping, accessing support information, social media and entertainment), we can help them connect with friends and regain some of their independence.
