About the Woollahra Dementia Alliance & Holdsworth
The Woollahra Dementia Alliance, supported by Woollahra Council and Holdsworth, meets bi-monthly to progress an action plan to make Woollahra more dementia-friendly, by raising awareness of issues faced by local people with dementia and taking actions to improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers.
Holdsworth’s mission is to support people in our community and encourage social connection to create independent and fulfilling lives.
Holdsworth is a for purpose organisation that’s been part of the fabric of life in the Eastern Suburbs since the 1940s. Starting with before and after-school care for local children, we evolved in the 1970s to provide support to housebound older residents. Today, we provide a broad range of services for people living with disability, families and older Australians. Our services have changed over the years, but our values still hold strong.
