Sometimes people say lovely things about the work I do here.
Hi Caron, Your blog is great and very informative; will definitely be keeping an eye on it. Many Thanks, Karen Birchall (Project/Change Manager & Qualified Staff Governor, Calderstones Partnership NHS Foundation Trust)
Hi Caron, I enjoy your blog very much and the products you seem able to find always seem to be great solutions to problems we encounter a lot. The no nonsense way you review them is spot on. Keep up the great work Caron and we look forward to being in touch with you more. Sally Wilse. Seniors for Seniors

Caron Sprake is one of the most passionate of people I have known who fights for the needs and rights of older people” Prof Jason L Powell PHD Gerontologist. This was the letter he wrote in support of my application for Rotary Club funding to help me support the elderly and orphans in Kenya….oh my goodness.
Hi Caron, Could you please supply me with two room thermometers please for my mum who is 88 and living in her small flat.Thanking you in advance.

This is really awesome! I like this post! Last Christmas we invited our elderly neighbours for a simple dinner at home. I could really see the happiness in their eyes while they started reminiscing their past.
Interesting blog with lots of great topics and information. Keep up the great writing Caron! John Ashby.
Hi Caron, I was touched by your journey and commitment to caring for the elderly. I agree that loneliness should be treated with the same urgency as obesity. I work with people who are overweight/obese and generally my clients are 45 to 55 or older, but no matter what their age I have noticed that lonely people often don’t care as much about their diet as they should and often over or under eat due to being lonely. I strongly believe that we are a species that lives best in groups and isolation is hard on the mind and body. Congratulations on speaking out, I look forward to reading more of your posts.

Hi Caron, Thank you for emailing me via Linkedin. Your website looks great with excellent content. I also checked out Silverline, which I didn’t really know much about. The work you do is fantastic! Best wishes, David
Hi Caron, great website! I wondered if you could please send me a free age uk thermometer please? Pat Dudley.
You should be very proud of yourself Caron. The website and the work you do is amazing. Keep up the good work 🙂 xx Mavis Sharkey
I was so pleased to find your informative website! Would it be possible to send me 2 thermometers – one for Dad and another for my 80 year old aunt? If only 1 is allowed, I understand. Many thanks, Fiona
