24/7 HEALTH CARE
Although Beauty Point is a self-care independent living village, as a resident you have access to an excellent range of health care services. Our friendly, fully trained medical staff are onsite 24 hours a day to take care of your health problems and questions. Best of all, there’s no charge to see our medical staff – it’s all part of our commitment to your wellbeing.
Our onsite nurse is available 6 days a week and runs a daily clinic where you can drop in. You also have the flexibility to call the clinic with any concerns, and should your health condition require, the nurse will visit you.
We bring all the important health services directly to the village so you can spend more time relaxing in the resort instead of travelling to medical appointments or chemists. Residents have easy access to visiting optometrists, podiatrists, dentists and remedial masseurs. Care staff also organise annual flu vaccinations, prescriptions and quarterly visits from hearing aid specialists.
ONSITE EMERGENCY RESPONSE
It’s the first few minutes after a serious health emergency that makes all the difference to your recovery. With this is mind, Beauty Point is the only retirement village in Sydney to offer an onsite emergency medical response team. In the unlikely event of a serious emergency, each unit is equipped with an emergency response call button. When pressed, our onsite medical team are guaranteed to be at your unit within four minutes, with our average response time being just two minutes. Our emergency medical team sleep onsite so your call never goes to an outside call centre.
A pathology collection service is offered at the village, where a local Pathologist regularly comes to the village medical suite to take medically prescribed samples for testing. Our Registered Nurse can also arrange bookings for the Pathologist to come to your home to perform these tests. The service is Bulk Billed so it does not incur any additional charge.
In addition to our trained medical staff, we also provide an onsite doctor’s surgery. Our doctor’s surgery is open to all residents every Tuesday afternoon at 2.30pm, with Dr Bruce Pirani in charge. Best of all it is a Bulk Billing service, so going to the doctor is not only convenient, the appointment doesn’t cost a fortune.
