Retired linguist Margaret gets help to get online

Margaret is a retired Linguist who found getting online a very stressful experience but since working with Peter, a digital volunteer from Age UK, has loved it.

I first received an iPad from my husband, which got me interested in getting online because I didn’t want to be left in the dark ages.

I started working with Peter which has been absolutely wonderful, and I can’t thank him enough. He’s also been my big enabler and helped a lot. Especially in these times of lack of contact, it’s been one of the good things and generally improved my life. I’m a linguist and it has allowed me to keep in touch with remote friends in Spain and get news from my family who I’m now in more regular contact.

It’s more than I ever realised would be possible in the beginning and I now use it for my hobbies. For example, my son sends me videos with a recording of songs which for a long time I didn’t know how to save. I’ve since discovered they’re also available on YouTube. It’s all making my life more enjoyable especially in lockdown when I don’t have a working week and have a lot of free time. I’ve now got to the point where I love it now!
