Fuss Free Phones

Posted on Nov 19, 2015. 0 comments

We are pleased to present a really helpful new service in partnership with Fuss Free Phones. Doro phones are already the market leaders for seniors, providing easy to use, loud and clear mobiles. This has now got even easier for those who do not wish to, or are not able to, remember how to program numbers, dial or create text messages. All this can be done for you with a friendly service that is reached by simply pressing the large "SOS" button on the rear - it's that easy! The trusted and popular Doro 614 phone is only £50 to buy with this service (or free if signing up for 12 months) and then just £20 a month to use with adequate minutes to call. This is very competitive compared to any other mobile phone contract, and flexible terms, cancel at any time. 0% VAT relief is available to those who qualify, making it an even more affordable service providing peace of mind and convenience, as well as reliable emergency contact if it is needed. We highly recommend this service and think it's a great addition to the range of products and services we offer to help our goal of ageing well. Read more »

Get Lively!

Posted on Jun 08, 2015. 0 comments

A great new product - Lively - has been launched today. It gives family members insight when a loved one may need their help. And with Lively’s new stylish and easy-to-use safety watch, 24/7 emergency response is just a single button push away. With its simple design, anyone can use it — and stay safer from falls and emergencies.

Get 24/7 help when it’s needed: Once the safety watch button is pushed, a live operator will attempt to reach the user by phone to confirm emergency services are needed — and can call up to 3 emergency contacts before emergency services are dispatched. The operator will stay on the line until help arrives.

This is an innovative and well designed service newly available in the UK. It looks great and provides a discrete yet effective way of making sure that your loved ones living alone are not only active, eating well, taking medication and, most importantly, in case of emergency have the means to call for help from a professional call centre operated 24 hours a day. We have enjoyed testing Lively, it is very well designed and also easy to set up. Highly recommended!

Welcome to the first blog from The Helpful Things Company.


We have been up a running for six months now, and have seen a huge increase in both the number of products on offer and the number of visitors we welcome each day. Most importantly, we enjoy connecting the two! We are only succeeding if we can help people in ageing well, that is our mission and feedback has been extremely positive.


You can read all about out products elsewhere on the site, the purpose of this blog is to explain more about the key product categories that we offer, provide context about the issues and challenges faced by users of these products, and to share our plans for development. We also hope that this will become a two-way communication channel and we very much welcome your feedback and comments.


Thank you for visiting the website, it's all about our customers and we think very carefully what you would like to see gathered in one place for us to provide helpful things to you!
