Alzheimer’s Australia and Men’s Sheds: Making a Difference

This is about reducing the social isolation often felt by men who are either caring for someone with dementia or have been given a diagnosis themselves.

Alzheimer’s Australia and Men’s Sheds: Making a Difference

Alzheimer’s Australia and Men’s Sheds: Making a Difference is about a program in the Hunter region of NSW for men in the early stages of dementia and male carers of people with dementia. The program, run by Alzheimer’s Australia NSW, in conjunction with the Australian Men’s Shed Association, looks at reducing the social isolation often felt by men who are either caring for someone with dementia or have been given a diagnosis themselves.
