We are a social enterprise and a non for profit organisation who transform lives through exercise! We work with older adults, patient groups, community organisations, people living with physical and intellectual disabilities. Our youngest participants are in their twenties with physical or intellectual disabilities and we are privileged to deliver services to a number of centenarians living in Nursing Homes.
We design programmes with a preventative approach that benefits all our service users. We promote autonomy and well being of older people and people living with chronic conditions, ensuring that everyone has the capacity and self-confidence necessary to live independent and happy lives.
Siel Bleu Ireland offers exercise programmes online and in person in Residential and Day Care, with organisations, in communities and also in private homes. Our expert Physical Trainers gauge the ability of each participant and tailor classes to meet their needs. Together this results in programmes which have a real physical, social and psychological impact.
Our team is what makes Siel Bleu Ireland really special. All our Trainers have at a minimum a degree in Sports Science or a related field to ensure they can safely lead each class. Each Physical Trainer is trained to the Siel Bleu standards, which encompass over 24 years of delivering life enhancing exercise programmes to older adults.
Their education and training ensure they understand participants’ physical conditions and are aware of how to tailor the exercise programmes to gain the maximum benefit for each participant. Our team are empathetic and kind, with the motivation to help older adults improve their lives through exercise. In addition to this our entire team is Garda Vetted and fully insured to deliver Siel Bleu Ireland programmes.
