The MENZ DEN Collective has been in existence since September 2017, and with the support of MannaCare staff and management the weekly events have evolved into a permanent activity on the Lower Templestowe Grevillea House agenda. With 14 to 16 mature aged men coming together in a safe and private meeting environment, we have seen men show greater self-esteem, greater happiness and an improved connection with their family and friends.
We discuss and communicate with our “mates” around the meeting table each week on a wide range of subjects and diverse topics. The collective is open to guest seekers with topics including My Role as a Volunteer Coordinator, My Past Business Experiences, My Daughter Is a RAAF Pilot, etc.
The MENZ DEN Collective has expanded to include Newmans on the Park aged care facility in Templestowe. A meeting of mature men who live in this facility now come together and enjoy new relationships and diverse discussion topics.
With the continued support of Victorian State Government MP’s, Local Council staff and the wider community our commitment to improving elderly lifestyles will flourish.
