Alzheimer’s WA is taking a proactive and cautious approach to COVID-19 (coronavirus) as some of our clients and carers may be in the high-risk category for the virus. Our priority is to protect our community including staff, clients and their families, advocates, students, partners and our visitors.
We are monitoring the situation daily and taking advice from the Department of Health. We are ensuring our protocols are best practice and offering alternatives services to our clients, carers, students and partners.
This has an impact on the availability of some services and change of delivery of other services. We are looking at additional ways we can continue to support our clients and adapt to the changing environment that coronavirus has created.
In this time of uncertainty, our focus is on continuing to support our community. Our services continue to ensure carers have a break and our clients have the opportunity to receive therapy, clinical support and socialisation.
We are here to support you and help you in any way we can. Please contact us on 1300 66 77 88 if you need any assistance and we will do our best to help you and/or point you in the right direction.
Being a part of a Men’s Shed provides opportunities to participate actively in a community with other men from diverse backgrounds and make new friends. Being involved in a social way at a Men’s Shed has been shown to increase quality of life.
Men’s Sheds provide a common shared space for social interaction. The sheds also provide male club members with a meditative space allowing for both creative expression and purposeful activity.
The sheds promote the health and wellbeing of the male members within the club by giving them the chance to engage in meaningful activities that can help maintain strength, coordination, thinking skills, emotional wellbeing and the ability to be as independent as possible.
