We all hope that we can remain in our own homes for as long as possible. But if we do need to go into a Care Home, it is hoped that the surroundings will be made as comfortable and homely to the place we have had to leave.

If, like me, you are an avid Internet user, will we be able to access the Internet in a care home? Do all the rooms have wi-fi? Or even just the individual bedrooms. If I need to go into a home for a reason that doesn't stop me from interacting on line with others, will I be able to?

How many homes are on line?

Only a fifth as at June 2013!

Surely this has to change.

Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Janice and I am the founder of www.OAPSchat.co.uk.This stands for Optimistic and ProActive Seniors Chat. OAPSchat was born in April 2013 as a Facebook page. To date there are over 1362 FB likes. It was in November 2013 that I decided I had enough material and confidence to launch the website.

Since that day, I have been writing articles on all kinds of topics. ranging from hobbies, holidays, food and drink, memories, families, finance and much much more. I now have over one hundred and twenty two wonderful contributors to date and articles on all different subjects are posted on a daily basis. Over 1040 articles can be read now! Members can comment via disqus, FB and Twitter.

Raffles are held monthly, sometimes more often. A newsletter goes out once a month with my plans for the coming weeks. I am an Independent Happy List Winner 2014 for founding the website.

Loneliness is a big scourge on our society worldwide and the website helps combat this awful isolation by coming together and sharing our thoughts and ideas. OAPSchat is well and truly born now and I hope it will continue to thrive. With your support, I'm confident it will!
