Care for the Aged

Celbridge Community Council has a long tradition of providing Care for the Aged in our community.  If you would like to be involved in this very valuable work or enquire about any of our services, please get in touch.

Celbridge Community Council's activities for older people in our community are listed below.

Personal Alarms

Seniors Alert Scheme LogoCelbridge Community Council has administered the Pobal Seniors Alert Scheme (and its predecessors) for many years. This scheme supports vulnerable older people in our community through the provision of personal monitored alarms to enable older persons, of limited means, to continue to live securely in their homes with confidence, independence and peace of mind.

Christmas Gifts

Celbridge Community Council has gifted older members of our community with Christmas parcels or vouchers for many years.

Meals on Wheels

Celbridge Meals on Wheels delivers meals in the locality on a twice weekly basis. Recipients benefit through the improvement of their nutritional status, health and quality of life but also through the provision of a source of social contact and connectivity. Celbridge Community Council supports this valuable work and tries to minimise the cost of these meals to recipients by obtaining funding from the HSE and by contributing to the shortfall in funding.

Day Care Club

Celbridge Community Council has assisted our partners at The Mill, Celbridge Community Centre with the costs of running the the Day Care Club. This club runs every Tuesday from 2pm-5pm and Thursday from 10am-1pm in Kate Walsh House at The Mill with members engaging in a variety of organised activities such as a light exercise programme, bingo, indoor bowls, singalong, dancing and availing of services such chiropody, shopping and taxi service where required. New members are always welcome.

Our volunteers have been running the Age Action Ireland Care and Repair programme since October 2018.
Our volunteers can help with carry out minor DIY household repairs and gardening jobs for older and vulnerable people free of charge with recipients of the service just needing to cover the cost of materials.

Our volunteers have been befriending persons over 60 who have limited social contact or feel particularly isolated and lonely since October 2018 under ALONE’s Befriending scheme. Befrienders provide companionship through a weekly one hour visit.
