Holdsworth Community is one of the first organisations in Australia to be accredited by Alzheimer’s Australia as a Dementia Friendly Community. We take a very individual approach to supporting people with memory loss and encourage people to continue to do all the things you have always enjoyed doing, for as long as possible.

Our activities and programs are tailored to you or your family member’s needs, abilities and interests.

Club Holdsworth is our group social connection program for people living with memory loss. The program runs from Tuesday through to Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm and you will take part in outings, music therapy, art therapy and our health issues and exercise and movement classes which are designed to engage you and keep you connected to the community in which you live. The program includes 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 service is available for people living with memory loss who are still living at home anywhere in the City or eastern suburbs.

The program also provides time out for your family members and carers have the option to access our Carer Support Services to help you cope with caring for someone with memory loss.
