cumberland view Cumberland View News TRAVEL LIFESTYLE & HEALTH ENTERTAINMENT Shirley Bradley 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. Could you be at risk of getting type 2 diabetes? Lifestyle factors include: - Not being very active - Family history - Carrying extra weight around the waist and being overweight - Smoking - If you had diabetes during pregnancy Healthy eating and physical activity could prevent up to 70% of type 2 diabetes and is an important part of effectively managing type 1 diabetes.

They’ll be strutting their stuff in front of other residents on the day and it’s an understatement to say the ladies are excited! They’ll be able to book an appointment at the hairdresser and pick their frocks and fascinators well ahead of their big day. We think these pictures speak for themselves. Residents get their spook on ahead of Halloween! It’s almost the creepiest time of the year again: Halloween! As Aussies embrace this American tradition more and more, the residents at Cumberland View Aged Care Living – Windmill Court will celebrate Saturday, 31st October in style. RECIPE Raspberry-lemon delights! In celebration of World Diabetes Day, we thought this diabetes-friendly raspberry-lemon muffin recipe would be perfect. Enjoy! Celebrating the Melbourne Cup in style The $1 and $2 in-house sweep will take place for all residents to enjoy and 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded to the lucky winners. On the Monday before the big race, we’ll be inviting residents to pick horses out of a hat. On 14th November, the world shines a light on diabetes education. If left unmanaged, diabetes can result in serious health complications because of the consistently high blood sugar levels its sufferers exhibit. Ras pbe rryLem pan on M uffin s 1.

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.

Each open plan design includes a study, ensuite, laundry room, attached garage and a private courtyard. We look forward to welcoming our new neighbours.
