Well winter is at last upon us, bringing a smile to the faces of the many farmers, pastoralists and graziers among our members, but putting a dampener on some of the bowling activity over the past month. However, when the rain has kept away, the greens have been open and play has taken place.

On Wednesday 5th June, a new bowls format was trialed, with ten four member drawn teams of mixed gender and skills, playing quins, a five match competition involving one 13 end singles, two 9 end pairs, one 11 end triples, and one 11 end fours, each team member playing in three matches. The day produced plenty of spirited friendly competition, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all . Hopefully this event will become a regular fixture in the Club calendar. Our thanks to Perter Collins who proposed, organised and ran the event, to Ruth and Ian Lilly for providing afternoon tea, and to new Club sponsor, Mosman Park Lottery Centre and Newsagency, for providing scratchies as spot prizes for "touchers" during the course of the day, and systems lotto tickets for the placegetters.

  • Provide the ability to store associations/districts/zones and club locator and office bearer information which is easily accessible to the public
  • Provide a historical record of every member’s involvement in our sport
  • Provide the ability for each member to update contact information, register club membership, register for events and make payments through the system
  • Allow for easy transfer of players from club to club/state to state
  • Potential signing up/log in via social media accounts
  • Allow members registered for multiple clubs to be able to declare which club they will represent in competition
  • Include effective and relevant way to deal with deceased members

Over the last few months we have come across so many seniors who are just unsure of what their next step is going to be.  We encourage all seniors to take the time to actually consider what options are available to them now and in the future.

Preparation now, whilst you might not yet be in need of a change, can provide the best outcome for you and your family in the future when the transition time comes.

The seniors that are now heading towards 75+ should be exploring what their options are.  It’s extremely important to take a number of items into consideration when making these decisions;
  • Your (and your partner’s) physical and mental health needs
  • Mobility issues
  • How close to transport are you?
  • Family and friends - are they close?
  • Socialisation opportunities (if you want them)
  • Proximity to health care and other services
  • Maintenance of the house and yard
  • Need for in-home care
Please find below a brief list of some of the options that could be made available to you:

1. Lease for Life Option
To break it down for you quickly (as you should seek advice from the organizations themselves), it’s a much cheaper buy in option with a weekly/monthly fee for up keep and maintenance and you will lose a percentage (% ) upon your death. These were selling around the low to mid $400K’s now they are in the low $300K’s.  On site care is usually also available.

2. Retirement Independent Apartments/Villas
There are lots more options here but of course it could be potentially double the cost if not a bit more to buy in.  Strata fee’s apply, and are sometimes nominated also as a maintenance fee.  There are some good ones in the Western Suburbs but buy in’s are more around the mid $700K’s and upwards.

3. Over 55’s Complex
This option which is usually a complex of 20 or so villas and the only stipulation is that you are over the age of 55. Strata fee’s would apply on a quarterly basis. This is considered as independent living and only should be considered for those people that are healthy.
 Other options could be:

Within some aged care facilities like ‘Aged Care 101’ they offer:

Retirement Villages
Land Lease Communities
Serviced Apartments
Home Care Retirement Villages
Co-Located Villages
Rental villages

If none of those appeal to you and you want to stay in your home we suggest asking yourself these questions:
  • Does the size of your home suit your current situation?
  • Does your current neighborhood/location suit your needs?
  • Are you financially going to be able to age in your current home?
  • Do you have the options of putting in a Granny flat?
  • Can my home accommodate in-home care services?
If you still unsure and want to have a chat about your options please give us a call. This might just be the perfect time for you to have a conversation with us regarding how we can get you organized and into the home that will suit all of your needs, as especially at the moment there are some really great downsizing options on offer to the market.
