Description / Summary
Research has shown that older men are less likely to socialize regularly, face a higher risk of mortality related to social isolation than women and men 65+ have one of the highest suicide rates. Many men see work as being central in shaping and sustaining their identity, so retirement can be a tough change which does not come easy. This toolkit looks to bring ideas to your community to engage more men.
This toolkit includes:
Survey results and barrier to participation
Examples of successful Men’s programming
Introduction to Men’s Sheds
Brainstorming Feedback from OACAO members
Men’s Sheds Resource List
