Tallow Enterprise Centre - Supporting Enterprise And Community In Tallow, Co. Waterford, Ireland.
Classes Of Interest To Senior Citizens

Classes Of Interest To Those Aged 55+

Our aim at the centre is to provide older people with interesting activities which they can enjoy in the company of their contemporaries. To give them a sense of involvement, achievement and ultimately empowerment which can sometimes be missing at this age. This is a time of life which should be enjoyed when the earlier responsibilities of life are no longer theirs, however, provision for such 'enjoyment' is often lacking in rural areas and isolation is common.

Computer classes continually run throughout the year and one to one tutoring is ongoing. Computer classes specifically for older people started in Spring 2009 and will continue to run during the Spring and Autumn seasons. This is an area which we strongly feel needs to be concentrated upon. As we get older mobility can become a problem, this is where computer and internet skills can become a life line. The internet can provide us with, and in some cases may ultimately be our only means of communication with the wider world, including children and relatives who may be living abroad. Video and audio communication is one of the areas covered. A complete list of our computer courses (including our Terrified Beginners Computer Class) is listed on this site or Click on our blog for details of current courses.

Art, Creative Writing and Pilates are also run each Spring and Autumn and have proven very popular with people over 55. See the Leisure And Education Courses section of this web site for more information, Click on our blog for details of current courses or please contact us.

In an effort to improve our facilities for less able people we applied for and were successful in receiving funding for two new chairlifts. These have now been installed and give everybody access to our computer training facilities and leisure time classes/courses.
