It is important for our elders to know that just because they are getting older; it does not mean that they cannot still enjoy meaningful aged care activities. Male specific activities are provided focusing of gender specific interests men will often gravitate towards and enjoy. Building projects, cards and some competitive social engagements are a few examples of ways for men to make some new friends and stay active.
