Cruising throughout Europe
Just before Europe’s sweltering summer season sizzled,
Cumberland View Retirement Living residents Jan Bourke,
Sue and Peter Miller, Christine Day and Carol Ryder,
embarked on an adventure to remember.
The group, who met at the retirement village, set sail on a
scenic cruise that saw them journey to Greece, Turkey and
Italy. As you can imagine, the group’s days and nights were
jam-packed with fun-filled activities. “It was quite tiring but
we really enjoyed ourselves,” says resident Jan Bourke.
So what was the highlight of the trip according to Jan?
“I loved Mykonos where they filmed Shirley Valentine
because the people were so friendly. We had a good laugh
when we came home and watched the film again.”
Speaking of having a good chuckle, Jan admitted to buying
a selfie stick on her travels and admitted to going down to
her local Baker’s Delight store after the trip to let them know
their pizza was better than what she tasted in Europe.

day. We think these pictures speak for themselves.

2015 Global Watch Index:
Where does Australia Rank?
Every year, the Global Watch Index presents its
snapshot of life facing older people in 96 different
countries. Highlighting the countries that are doing the
best for their mature citizens, the Index also looks at
how this relates to policies, pensions, education and so
on. While Switzerland topped this year’s Index, Australia
slipped from 13th last year to rank 17th in 2015.
The index is ranked according to 4 domain groups:
Health, Capability, Enabling Societies and Environments
as well as Income Security. Australia ranks highest
when it comes to health with values above the regional
average. It also ranks high in the capability domain due
to high levels of educational attainment (85.4%) and a
high employment rate (60.5%) among older people.
The country scores well in the enabling environment
domain with above average regional average
connectedness (92%) and civic freedom (94%). Sadly,
the country ranks lowest in the income security domain,
due to high old age poverty rate (33.4%) and a pension
income coverage (83%) below the regional average.
