  1. The University of the Third Age , known as the U3A is a great organisation for those retired folk and those not in full time employment. We have over a 1000 members in our Group in Christchurch, Dorset taking part in all sorts of activities. Maybe you could mention this organisation in your next article
    Many thanks

    • Hi Peter,

      Thank you for your comment. After doing some research on the U3A, I would be interested in doing an article on the organisation. I think that quotes from yourself as a member would also be great to include.

      If you’re interested in taking part, please could you send me an email confirming this? My email address is josh.close@lifeline24.co.uk.

      Many Thanks,
      Josh

  2. Hi, I enjoyed reading your article as it offered a lot of good suggestions for those who have retired. You have one problem with your website you might want to correct. The correct spelling for traveling, as you can see, has one “L” not two. It’s an easy mistake and I hope it’s easy for you to correct. Thanks for the article.

    • Hi Elaine,

      We’re so glad you enjoyed reading our website! We’re always looking for suggestions on what blogs and content you’d like to see more of. With regards to the spelling of ‘Travelling’, we are using the U.K. spelling of this, which traditionally has two L’s.

      Thanks again for your comment!

  3. I retired 3 days ago, the most important thing is to stay busy. If money is an issue then your future hobbies are limited. I am fortunate to live near open moorland (west Yorkshire) but a pastime in walking is dependant on weather and health, but it’s the best way to stay fit. My motorcycle building was impaired by being ripped off on eBay, buying a moped in Norwich, Which stopped my favourite hobby overnight. Reading, writing, watching dvds and listening to music are all great but they don’t stop you from sitting down for hours. Model building is my old favourite but it’s unusually expensive. Plus when you’ve finished a model it becomes a dust collector. I keep a diary to. It reminds me daily that I need to do more, but it’s hard to do the things you used to do, but can no longer manage easily. My advise is to try lots of new things and see what takes your fancy. Forget work! Pete

  5. Find it almost impossible to get out, as don’t drive, I use a frame to walk and a wheelchair which have to have someone to . Befrienders are very hard to find in my small village, have tried, just see my carers each day, very occasionally someone might pop in.

  6. Have you any ideas for the over 60 as run the entertainment and want something we can do for fun have got bingo, quiz beetle drive, and word searches but can’t think of anything else. Have you any ideas? Most are not very active or able to move around.

    • Hey Isobell,

      We have a few games to recommend… Bananagrams, Rory’s Story Cubes, and Ticket To Ride – which is great for lovers of travel. Board games and card games are always a great idea, you could even set up tournaments for groups.

      Best wishes,
      Lifeline24

Excellent service in supplying my alarm. Have not used it yet, and hope I don't have to, but having it gives me peace of mind.

I will probably appreciate it more when i become used to it , at present I find it very sensitive easy to set off while dressing and undressing but it is good to have this lifeline as I live alone in a rural area .and it gives my family peace of mind

I ordered one of these alarms for my mother and, from the initial internet search to delivery and installation, we received excellent service. It arrived the day after I ordered it! The instructions were clear and easy to follow and there was first class support during the testing process. It is helpful that there is an option of necklace and bracelet version, and the fact that this device has a range of 100m and can be worn in the shower, are added benefits. It has given both me and my mother great peace of mind, knowing that someone can help if she has an accident.

I've always had a fear of falling & not being near the phone but now I have complete peace of mind. All elderly people should have one. Very easy to set up as well. Thankyou.

Recently purchased this for my auntie. Excellent service & the staff are so helpful & checked everything thoroughly when we tested the alarm. My mum has had one for years & just gives you peace of mind. Would highly recommend.
