Working to reduce loneliness and increase health and wellbeing by helping older people to stay mobile and stay connected
“As people become aware of the finitude of their life, they ask only to be permitted, insofar as possible, to keep shaping the story of their life in the world—to make choices and sustain connections to others according to their own priorities.” ― Atul Gawande, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End
Falls cause loneliness and loneliness causes falls. the Scottish Government estimates the cost of avoidable harm could rise to over £600Million by 2020. This is a rescue mission for the NHS.

Roar is committed to raising awareness of the importance of Digital Inclusion to living independently. Families who want to help older relatives should be actively encouraging this.
