Helping people living with dementia stay at home longer

Welcome to Treehouse4Two

Treehouse4Two is a free three-day retreat for people diagnosed with
dementia and their carers in the Macedon Ranges and Hepburn regions.

This government-funded initiative, modelled on HammondCare’s Staying at Home program,
is designed to equip participants with the skills and knowledge to live well at home for longer.

A supportive retreat for wellbeing and independence

At treehouse4two, we focus on wellbeing and self-care, providing a supportive peer environment. Participants receive tailored support from our specialist staff.

Our goal is to help maintain independence and engage in meaningful activities. Carers also learn how to navigate the challenges of supporting someone living with dementia and access community resources, including respite.
