*Please Note: Healing Heroes Network can only consider one request per applicant. For example, we will consider an application for Tablets For Heroes OR Welcome Home Heroes, not both. The first form submitted will be considered.
The Tablets for Heroes Program provides tablet computers to veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan who have sustained Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and/or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) while serving since September 11, 2001.
Symptoms associated with PTSD and TBI can include disorganization, forgetfulness, and disorientation. With the aid of a portable computer tablet, they would have constant access to an electronic schedule, cognitive assistance, and consistent access to various forms of wireless communications to stay in touch with family, caregivers, or doctors.
There are 7 applications downloaded on the tablets that serve as therapeutic programs, as well as copying and adaptability coaching applications.
Tablets for Heroes will help our troops heal cognitively and allow them to be more self-sufficient, rather than relying on caretakers.
To be eligible for the Tablets for Heroes Program, you must:
