Skype for Veterans

Nurses from Canada have proposed a to reduce social isolation for the residents of a Long Term Care facility via Skype. Their project was shared via Care Challenge and was chosen to receive promotional support – a professional video – from the Connecting Nurses Steering Committee. When accepting this support, nurse Lorraine La France said, “The video seems to be an excellent idea. It would allow nurses immediate access to how we started and applied the program and could be used by any center, virtually anywhere. In other words a video would reach more people and more people who are isolated could benefit from a better quality of life. It could be used by hospitals, long term care centers, communities, libraries, churches, schools, in homes etc. Anywhere that a nurse is involved.”
