Choice of Independent or Supported Living Apartments

There is a wide choice of affordable retirement apartments at Leisure Lea Gardens, from compact, modern apartments suitable for those who require extra care and support, to spacious, two-bedroom apartments ideal for active retirees. Each apartment is designed within a beautifully landscaped setting to promote maximum independence and minimum maintenance.

If you or your loved one requires extra care, choosing a Supported Living Apartment may be the better option. These attractive apartments offer all the same quality features as our Independent Living apartments but are usually smaller and easier to manage. They are also located close to the dining-room, community centre, village facilities and administration staff.
Many extra services are available with our Supported Living package, including apartment cleaning, bed-making, a laundry service and meal deliveries. Retirement living has never been so easy!

Hear From Our Residents

10 out of 10 Leisure Lea!

"Leisure Lea has been a perfect choice for my mother’s move closer to her immediate family. The staff and residents have been supportive from the first Open Day visit and tour. They have continued to make Mum welcome as a resident and me as a visitor. The on-site Doctor, pharmacy collection and delivery, as well as the settling in maintenance assistance have been much appreciated. The friendly residents, beautiful gardens and the birds that visit are a real bonus. 10 out of 10, Leisure Lea."

Kathy Collins (daughter of Barbara Kilgour)

Living Choice was the Right Choice

“Mum moved into Leisure Lea Gardens a number of weeks ago and is settling in nicely and enjoying her new home. It was a difficult decision to downsize and move but it was the right decision. The decision was made that little bit easier because of your “fixed levies for life” offer. Knowing levies will be set for life will make budgeting much easier. Thanks for making mum feel welcome.”


I Am Safe and Happy

"The plan to sell my house and move to Living Choice Leisure Lea was the best lifetime decision I could ever have made. Life has been happy, stress free and so easy. All staff are cheerful and attentive. Meals in the dining room are really good.  I have treated friends and they were impressed too. Other residents have been generous in welcoming me into any activities, and there are lots of things to do. My sons are thrilled with my decision. They have peace of mind that I am safe and happy."
