Last year we were lucky to be recognised in the area of Innovation for our MENZ DEN Collective program at MannaCare Inc, Doncaster.
We are pleased to announce a new group started this week at the Charlesbrook aged care facility in Templestowe, a north eastern suburb of Melbourne. Our mature aged mens discussion group was a collective of eight residents seeking companionship and connections with other like minded men. We shared our life experiences and shared some fun events and with smiles and laughter.
Our plans are to meet twice a month and enjoy good mateship. A thank you to the Charlesbrook site management and Lifestyle staff for making our group happen.
On the lighter side of life, some of our communities see our “federal pollies” like those in this photo … do you?
We have made several submissions to the Victorian Government and have been lucky to be accepted in the Pick My Project incentive for our Nillumbik and Manningham communities. If you would like to know more about our exciting programmes please look up the Pick My Project website or let us know and we will be pleased to follow up your enquiry. Please ring 0431 828 942 or email email@example.com.
Supporting The Age Of Change will help our mature aged Men and Women communities.
We will be on show at The Hub in Hurstbridge this coming Sunday 26th August so please come and see us. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have about The Age Of Change collectives and the Pick My Projects incentives applicable in the Nillumbik and Manningham council areas.
Jessica and I will be happy to see you there from 10am through to 4pm so please come to Hurstbridge and say Hello.

One of the features of MENZ DEN Collective is sharing photos of our younger past and any important family or community events. Here we have two members looking at some old 1960s photos. It looks like they were funny ones!
One of our MENZ DEN Collective members enjoyed his birthday recently. The celebrations were with our men’s group with some hearty singing and afterwards eating some fresh cake with coffee. We all like sharing important celebrations and life milestones with our mates at Grevillea House on Thursday mornings.
Last week the Grevillea House MENZ DEN Collective were given a presentation by Ms Bernadette Milsted, a Dementia Australia Councellor who provided us with 5 steps that we can help improve our Brain Health. These included the following 5 action steps:
- look after your heart
- do some kind of physical activity
- mentally challenge your brain
- follow a healthy diet, and
- enjoy social activity.
We all agreed that we should maintain our healthy diet plans and maybe start a new hobby. Thanks to the members for their interaction and to Bernadette for an interesting morning’s presentation.
