MyDodl

Background

MyDodl was founded 2015 in Cambridge, UK, by Dr. Michael Pedersen and Dr. Rosamund Marvin. Our mission is to enable elderly people to communicate using modern technology - even those who have never before used computers or tablets and perhaps have given up all hope of ever doing so.

It is a cruel irony of our time that those people who could benefit the greatest from technology, to combat social isolation and loneliness, are also those people who are least likely to have the option. We aim to change this with MyDodl.
