Men’s Shed provides mateship for seniors
June 11-17 is Men’s Health Week, which aims to raise awareness and prevention of men’s health issues and to celebrate men’s roles within the community. Catholic not-for-profit,
Villa Maria Catholic Homes
, runs a Men’s Shed in Wantirna, which has provided a safe-haven for men for more than a decade.
Three times each week, around 30 men aged over 65 pop into the shed to have a chat, a cuppa and work on some woodwork projects for their family members and friends. It is a place of friendship and fun. The seniors – who may have dementia, a physical disability, or are frail aged – are usually referred to the shed by local support agencies and through My Aged Care.
Noel, who has recently created a Sydney Harbour Bridge replica out of matchsticks, said he enjoyed visiting the shed to “chat to the other guys and make things.”
“The company is great. It’s better than staying at home and there’s people in the same boat as me,” he said.
