Care for the elderly - Newington, Edinburgh - Caring In Craigmillar - Making a real difference

Men's Group

Many elderly men are at risk of becoming isolated from the local community. Men's Group aims to counteract this by providing a means by which members can interact with others and forge new friendships.

Most members of Men's Group are between 67 and 89 years of age, and many are widowers. Men's Group provides the opportunity to develop new friendships.

Events and activities

Typically we offer day outings to places of interest, shopping trips and other activities. We often finish the day with a centre-based activity in which members discuss the day's events whilst eating a meal together.

Members often decide on destinations of days out themselves, which range from famous landmarks to castles.

Combating loneliness
and isolation

Men's Group has made a significant impact on members' general well-being and outlook. Visits to castles and other interesting places provide a change from everyday life and an opportunity to interact with others.
We often stop for a pub lunch midday, and we give members the opportunity to go shopping if they like.
