The purpose of this study was to explore the participation of older adults (aged 60 years and older) in virtual volunteering activities partially or totally from home or other off-site locations. The study collected data using semi-structured, open-ended interviews with nine older virtual volunteers affiliated with SeniorNet, an organisation that facilitates virtual volunteering for older people. 

Note: Based on the abstract (see the URL below), I suggest caution in extrapolating findings due to the apparent research methods used.
