Holdsworth Community has been accredited by Alzheimer’s Australia as a Dementia Friendly Organisation and as a Best Practice site. We take a very individual approach to supporting people with memory loss and encourage people to continue to do all the things they have always enjoyed doing, for as long as possible.
Our activities and programs are tailored to your abilities and interests.
Club Holdsworth is our group social connection program for people living with dementia. The program supports you to take part in outings, music therapy, art therapy and exercise and movement classes which are designed to engage you and keep you connected to the community in which you live. We include pick-up, drop-off and lunch. Some of our programs are participant led, with you making all the choices, but with staff there to support you, as and when needed.
The program also provides time out for your family members, and carers have the option to access our Carer Support Services to help with caring for someone with memory loss.
Step Up For Dementia
The goal of StepUp for Dementia Research is to make it possible for everyone who wants to be involved in dementia research to get the chance to do so and to help researchers find the people they need.
One of the big difficulties researchers face is finding enough participants for their studies. At the same time, many people are looking to participate in studies, but don’t know where to find them. StepUp for Dementia Research solves this problem by connecting people who want to participate in research with the right study.
Dementia is the second highest cause of death among Australians. In 2018, there are an estimated 425,416 Australians living with dementia.
There are numerous questions about diagnosis, treatments, prevention, and best care, for which there are no clear answers. Research into dementia will help find these answers.
A dementia breakthrough, powered by you!
Facing the challenge of treating and beating dementia can feel overwhelming and it’s easy to assume that you are powerless to help.
But nothing could be further from the truth.
By supporting Australia’s brightest research minds, you become part of a community working together to improve diagnosis and treatment today, to power a breakthrough tomorrow.
