Great Expectations: Retirement Living
Thinking about downsizing your home and moving into a retirement community? Here are ten things you’ll want to know first.
So you’re in your late 50s, 60s or beyond, and you thought you’d enjoy easing into retirement. But having all those extra hours to wander the golf course, or to simply do what you want, whenever you want, is losing its appeal. You need something else. You want more of a routine back in your day. You want a challenge. You want to go back to work - but you also want to have more control over your working day, too.Read more
The Spanish Club
The first time I went to my Spanish meetup group, all I could say was hola – which means hello. Everyone else was chattering away and I was going, ‘Hola, hola, hola!’ Since then, speaking Spanish has opened up a whole new world for me and that's what encourages me to keep going and get better at it. In 2014 I started at the Spanish school in town, and after I got to know some of the students, I suggested to a couple of them that we form own little group.Read more
Reuse and recycle
According to Cleanup Australia, Australians are among the highest waste producers in the world, generating almost 41 million tonnes of rubbish each year, half of which is either being dumped in the environment or sent to landfill where it can’t be recycled.

The Wellbeing Committee
initially joined the Wellbeing Committee because I was interested in helping others around me. I’ve been involved now for about two years. The idea behind the group is to maximise access to services for the residents and to help them to make the most of their health and wellbeing. We’re all volunteers, of course. There’s a very holistic approach to what we do. We put on talks from various organisations on things like diabetes, heart health and Alzheimer’s. We have a list of drivers who can take people to their appointments, ladies who do sewing jobs, a gentleman who does carpentry, and even people who can help residents with their computers. We send cards to people if they’re ever sick or in hospital and we’re also there as general support. When new people move in, I’ll give them a call to welcome them.Read more
