Men’s get-to­gether a pos­i­tive out­let

Wanneroo Times - - News -

A FORTNIGHTLY ‘men’s club’ in Edgewater is be­ing high­lighted this Men’s Health Week as one of the ways to pro­mote health and well­be­ing.

Staff at Mercy Place recog­nised the im­por­tance of get­ting older men to spend time to­gether and es­tab­lished the reg­u­lar get-to­geth­ers for male res­i­dents.

The 2017 theme for Men’s Health Week is “Healthy Body – Healthy Mind: Keep­ing the bal­ance”, which fo­cuses on the way men and boys keep phys­i­cally and emo­tion­ally healthy.

The theme res­onates with the se­niors and vol­un­teers who are part of the men’s club, which pro­vides a re­laxed, friendly en­vi­ron­ment where men can chat about ‘blokes’ things’ at the not-for-profit aged care home.

Ser­vice man­ager He­len Fullar­ton said it pro­vided a pos­i­tive out­let for male res­i­dents to have reg­u­lar get-to­geth­ers.

Men’s Health Week runs from June 12-18 to raise aware­ness.

Blokes do­ing bloke things: Dave Stra­chan, Des Wil­son, Bob Cramp, Roy Gr­belja and Ian King. d469204
