Holdsworth volunteer Miya is a passionate advocate for those living with Dementia in the community. Miya first connected with Holdsworth while supporting her father through Dementia – with Holdsworth fondly referred to as his ‘club’. She supports Dementia Australia and the Woollahra Dementia Alliance to help businesses become Dementia-friendly, a topic close to heart after the many small things local businesses did to create a welcoming space for her father, including his favourite cafe creating a special ‘Bob’s Menu’.

For the past decade, Katherine has used Holdsworth’s transport services due to her limited mobility, but when she was encouraged to join Wellness Hub, she had reservations. Thankfully, she decided to try, and she’s found the sensitive care and professionalism has helped her maintain her health and independence, plus she enjoyed it much more than she’d expected! The Katherine before Wellness Hub, and the Katherine now: “They’re chalk and cheese,” she says.
