Here’s one of our new community-based innovation projects for our older persons service.
What is The Loneliness Project?
We know loneliness is a very real problem for up to 40% of our clients in our older persons service. We are exploring new options to try and help.
One of those new options is a “Men’s Group”. The group meets fortnightly and numbers are growing. We have received positive feedback about the effect this group has had on the men who attend. We plan to replicate this model across our region in Auckland with mixed gender groups as well.
