BETTY FISHER

BETTY Fisher (left) thought moving out of her Lidcombe family home after 32 years to build another in the peace and quiet of Glendenning would be it.

But minor health issues and the wish to be close to concert, opera and ballet facilities, saw her rethink her options. A sweep through the Internet brought her to Beauty Point.
“I don’t believe in wasting a moment of this life,” she says. “I saw, I bought and I did it up myself.

“The apartment sits right on the river, every facility is here, the residents are wonderfully friendly and the staff are incredible. I absolutely adore my life here.”

Indeed, letting go of the second big home has given her new-found freedom. After a major back operation the staff looked after her and she’s now planning her next trip to Europe in June.
