Seniors Alert Scheme

This scheme, which has been advertised on the radio recently, is government-funded, and offers peace of mind to people aged over 65 who know that if they have a fall or need help with anything, assistance is just the press of a button away.

The purpose of the scheme is to enable older people to continue to live in their home with independence and confidence by providing them with a free personal monitored alarm. The alarm can be worn as a pendant or around the wrist like a watch. When pressed, it connects wirelessly to a base unit, usually attached to a phone. The base unit immediately sends a call to a 24 hour monitoring unit. 

The scheme is administered locally by community and voluntary groups from the local area. Further information is also available from Pobal athttps://www.pobal.ie/Beneficiaries/Seniors%20Alert%20Scheme/Pages/default.aspx

If you would like further information about this scheme, let us know, and we’ll pass on contact information.

Sticky: Greek Culture

I is not possible to appraise Greek Culture a a whole, through a computer screen.
Nevertheless, being aware of the force and the potentialities of new technologies, we tried to squeeze in this program the millennia of artistry, the centuries of outstanding art, the achievements of the human spirit, the routes on which the western civilization strobe in order to reach its current form.

Schools to Remain Closed – Tuesday 17 October 2017

Schools to remain closed Tuesday 17 October, 2017

Following careful consideration by the National Emergency Coordination Group, the Department of Education and Skills, has decided that all schools will remain closed tomorrow.

This decision was primarily taken in the interests of child safety and on the basis of information available in what is a developing situation. While it is recognised that some schools may not be as badly impacted as others, the information available at this time indicates that over 350,000 businesses and homes are already without power, and severe winds continue to cause damage across the country as the storm progresses. Many regional and local roads are closed due to fallen trees.

It is also the case that school authorities will in very many cases not have had an opportunity to check their buildings and confirm they are safe, have power and water, and that routes to the school are safely open.

It is recognised that the decision to close schools will have a major impact on families and on the workforce. However, this decision has been taken in the interests of safety for children and to provide clarity for everyone concerned.
