Staff profile - Nancy Le!
Posted on April 05, 2019
While most Beauty Point Retirement Residents stay fit, healthy and happy, if you do have an unexpected health problem there is no better place to be than in a resort with highly trained medical personnel only metres away.
Best of all, there’s no extra charge to see the Beauty Point medical staff, led by Health Care Manager Nancy Le.
Nancy Le has spent her life to date working and training in many different facets of health care, after completing her Bachelor of Nursing at the University of Western Sydney. Her career has included community nursing, specialising in aged care, as well as trauma.
But it was in aged care where Nancy’s own heart lay and so two years ago she became Beauty Point’s Health Care Manager.
Now, Nancy is dedicating her life to ensuring retirees live a fit, healthy and independent lifestyle in resort surrounds.
As the Resort’s Health Care Manager, Nancy is at the forefront of a new style of retirement living,
where retirees are offered the right services at the right time to maintain their lifestyles for as
long as possible.
“Our level of care is unheard of in retirement villages,” Nancy explains. “It gives residents reassurance, so they can just relax and enjoy their retirement. But at the same time, if they don’t need us, they wouldn’t know this kind of health care exists in the resort.”
The kind of unique health care services Beauty Point offers its residents includes a twice-daily pharmacist delivery, a medication analysis service, an on-site doctor’s surgery and regular visits by health professionals, such as a podiatrist and dentist, plus onsite, 24 hour critical care.
Plus, Nancy is on hand to answer any health care questions her residents may have. Even more amazingly, most of these health care services are totally free.
“We take care of the little things, like chasing up prescriptions and getting specialist appointments or organising flu vaccinations, so that residents can just concentrate on enjoying retirement without having to go back and forth to a doctor or pharmacist,” Nancy says.
“We can also organise physiotherapy or an occupational therapist, seminars on the latest health research, fitness programs and tips, a monthly visit from specialists, plus we offer three on-site doctors who work in our bulk-billing surgery.
Nancy Le, Beauty Point Retirement Village’s Health Care Manager“We also answer any health questions residents may have. So our residents don’t need to go to the doctor as often because, in most instances, we can take care of any problems.”
“But, we are only there to the level you ask for, because we are a selfcare Resort and very dedicated to that lifestyle for retirees.”
Nancy say Beauty Point’s residents decide what kind of retirement they want, and the health care services she provides helps them achieve this, as well as retain their independence for far longer than they would on their own.
And, if your health needs increase in the future, Beauty Point brings the health care services to you, rather than making you go to them. The idea is with free health and fitness services
your doorstep, you are far more likely to stay healthy, and out of a nursing home, for good.
In a small number of instances where a retiree may need an extra level of care, the Southhaven Nursing Home is nestled in bushland on the banks of Salt Pan only two minutes away, and in this case Beauty Point staff take care of all the arrangements for you, so it is as stress-free as possible.
“What we offer here, most of all, is peace of mind. Our residents enjoy a five-star lifestyle knowing that if our health services are ever needed, they are there when they ask,” Nancy says.
