In Profile A CONNECTED COOK

83 year old Eva and her husband arrived in Australia forty years ago after escaping Cyprus with ”just the clothes we were wearing”. Raising three boys, Eva quickly adapted to her new life and community in suburban Melbourne. With her family now all grown up, Eva still loves living in her own home, with dog Bella and the bird with ”no name”. A proud family matriach, Eva is ”YiaYia” to six grandchildren and five great grand children. A passionate cook, Eva is happiest in the kitchen cooking and baking for her brood. ”They all love coming around” she says proudly and who can blame them with the delicious treats on offer! Eva keeps active and walks every day down to the shops or to catch the train to the Cyprus Social Club,

where she is a member. Always open to new things, Eva is also well connected online with a laptop and iPad set up by her son. ”I love looking up the Cypriot recipe websites” she explains and she stays connected with family and friends all over the world via Facebook. In fact Eva’s iPad always travels with her as it is now her portable photo album. ”I love it because I can show everyone the latest photos of the children”. Eva utilises Calvary’s services as part of her Home Care Package. Matched with a Greek speaking Support Worker, Eva books in communty access visits and domestic assistance support.

Life Lessons ON THE ROAD

Truck aficionado Rod Lee lives independently in his own home in Canberra. Rod’s van is fitted for easy wheelchair access and he is always out and about in the Capital. In the 1990’s, Rod was in the Army and was deployed to Bosnia in 1993. He was a delivery driver of supplies and drove trucks overseas.

Going on holiday was my big goal and recently we reached the Gold Coast. It’s such a great feeling when you achieve a goal.

Rod loves to share photos with family, friends and Calvary staff and visit the museum, shows and the cinema with his support workers.

Follow your Passions

I’m allergic to wives but treasure my family! I have a tribe of five kids and three grandchildren and love having them over for a big Christmas soiree every year. My brother Greg is a great companion and an integral part of my life. He put together a family history and I have really enjoyed exploring my ancestry. Set goals to achieve what you want in life Whatever your circumstances goal setting is very important. Big or small, write them down so everyone knows and so that you are all on the same page. 8

Since I was a small boy I have always loved trucks and vehicles. I worked as a mechanical engineer and owned trucks in my business. I am still mad about trucks and visit the Penrith truck show with my Calvary Support Worker every year. Communicate with the people around you I accept that I need support to live independently but you can’t expect everyone to understand your perspective straight away. I try and communicate as much as possible and be open and accepting of new people. Do the stuff you enjoy You can do anything. But be careful. Think about things first, take time to consider the consequences and then do it.

OPA-CIZE™ GET FIT THE GREEK WAY

Once the music starts everyone is in a fun place “It’s a bit like ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’, minus the food of course!” explains Kathy, founder of the new exercise phenomenon taking the world by storm. Created in Sydney, “Opa-Cize™” combines traditional Greek dance moves with a cardio workout to create a vibrant fitness class full of Kefi! (Fun) Designed for ‘every body’, the moves are simple to follow and can be adapted to suit individual fitness levels, body shapes and style. 10

“We set the level at medium so participants can work to their own pace” says Kathy, “and we find that the older ladies do it very differently to the younger ones and we have even had people in wheelchairs participate as they can do the hand movements”. Dedicated to Kathy’s late sister who passed away suddenly, Opa-Cize™ is all about getting people moving, active and social. “My sister was reclusive and suffered from depression”

Continuing the Mission of the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary


explains Kathy “so I want to make sure that people have a place to go where they feel welcomed and can celebrate life.” Kathy’s philosophy has resonated with women around the world and in just a year, Opa-Cize™ has gone global. “All you need is a towel and a bottle of water. It’s energetic but you walk out of the class feeling blissfully happy”.

Interested in Opa-Cize™? For more information about Opa-Cize™ classes or videos, log on to the website www.opa-cize.com

Get into the garden this winter with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation. Although the weather cools down in winter, it’s still a great time to get active out in the garden. So rug up and head out to the veggie patch to do some winter planting. Gardening has many health benefits, and your efforts will be well rewarded with delicious home-grown produce. You can also prepare your beds for spring by digging in organic matter such as well-rotted compost, blood and bone or well-rotted animal manure. In late winter start mulching with sugarcane mulch, pea straw or lucerne, so your garden is ready for the next round of planting. If you already have an established veggie garden, winter is the time to harvest broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, spinach and celeriac. Once you have harvested all your lovely winter produce, spend a day in the kitchen cooking up some hearty winter fare.

The Foundation is now helping more than 1000 schools and early years learning centres across Australia teach children the joys of growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing fresh, seasonal, delicious food.

Calvary s Garden for all Senses

Introducing the New Five Senses Garden at Calvary St Joseph’s With a waterfall, chicken pen and edible plants (herbs and apples), the new garden at Calvary St Joseph’s Retirement Community has been carefully curated to offer an experience that will engage all the senses. Designed by Maintenance Manager Paul Campbell and gardener Miro Disciascrio, the garden allows residents, especially those with dementia, to enjoy nature in a safe and tactile environment. Paul undertook significant research to ensure that the garden would be safe for the residents. Paul explains, “I had to make sure the plants would be safe. They needed to be edible and not sharp to touch. We also had to think about the materials we used around the garden”.

Sensory Gardens can also make a great contribution to emotional and physical health. They can be beautiful places to relax, reflect, meditate, contemplate and talk. Calvary St Joseph’s Manager Helen Gayner has found that “the residents just love sitting in the peaceful surrounds of the garden”. If you would like to take a tour of Calvary St Joseph’s and the sensory garden call 1800 22 20 00. For assistance in the garden or kitchen, call Calvary Community Care on 1300 66 00 22.

Values in Action VOLUNTEERING IN THE COMMUNITY

Volunteering is a great way to get involved in your community, meet new people and make a difference to the lives of others.

Across Calvary over 1400 volunteers generously devote their time to care for others and help bring the values of hospitality, healing, respect and stewardship to life.

It provides experience that you can use to gain employment. It also shows prospective employers that you are a reliable and committed individual”.

Their contributions are making a difference every day to our clients, residents and patients and vice versa. For volunteer Rhonda Halverson for example, the reward is all about “seeing the smiles on the residents faces”.

This was true for volunteer Doug Thoma who is now working as a care service employee at Calvary Cessnock after cooking barbecues, driving the bus and running the Mens Shed.

Calvary’s volunteer program also provides opportunities for individuals to learn new skills and make new friends. According to Calvary Cessnock Volunteer Coordinator Therese Fitzgibbon “volunteering is a great way to kick start your career.

Therese emphasises that volunteers are integral to Calvary’s mission. “Volunteers are part of our team, everybody’s role is important and no one’s role can function without others. If you are interested in volunteering at Calvary download an application form at www.calvarycare.org.au
