Living Choice Leisure Lea Gardens

Marsfield, Sydney NSW

At Leisure Lea Gardens we’ve found the perfect recipe for a great retirement that ticks all the boxes – Living Well, Location, Luxury and Lifestyle!

Add a home-style, on-site kitchen where tasty meals are prepared three times daily, plus caring, supportive staff who are always there when you need them, and you can rest assured that you have found the perfect mix for a happy retirement.

Leisure Lea Gardens retirement community is located in the City of Ryde (northern suburbs of Sydney), conveniently located only 2.5kms away from Macquarie Shopping Centre.

The 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 daily meals, apartment cleaning, bed-making, and laundry services.

Take a bow, Leisure Lea Gardens’ staff members

Retirement Living TestimonialWe receive many lovely testimonials from family members of residents at Leisure Lea Gardens and, during these difficult times, they really lift the spirits of our staff members. Here is one we received from Susan Burgis this week:

“As you are aware, my parents, Clive and Jean Pringle, moved to Leisure Lea Gardens Retirement Village in Marsfield from the Central Coast 12 months ago. I am thankful to my daughter, Chelsea Gordon, who found your village and orchestrated the move. The settling-in period and subsequent interest and care for my parents has been outstanding. I cannot thank you and your staff enough. “All of your staff are joyful and they go the extra mile in so many ways. I hear about Juliet, Linda, Stephen, Joel, Robert, Ramani, Wendy, Neil and Claude regularly. The visits to Dr Bob are always positive, and his personal care and understanding of my parents' health is evident. The nurses have also been very supportive, diligently visiting my parents to check on their health at various times over the year.

“The meals are varied and delicious and the option of ordering meals is a great support to my Mum. The staff have even helped my highly motivated 87-year-old father to continue his hobby of potting plants. Dad also enjoys the gym and is a regular on the well-kept equipment. They have enjoyed the Friday Happy Hour and the many entertaining shows that have been put on during the year.

“They have also been thankful to be able to attend the monthly Church Service and Mum has made some new friends to link with at the Thursday Craft Afternoons. Walks around the block have been conducted during COVID restrictions and this has also been positive for Mum. The beautifully well-kept gardens are always a joy, and Mum and Dad and their visitors enjoy walking through the different flowers as the seasons change. “During these unusually isolating times, it is wonderful to know that my parents are very well cared for. To hear that they are feeling so happy at Leisure Lea Gardens really warms my heart. Please pass this letter of thanks to your staff.”

At Leisure Lea Gardens we offer both Independent and Supported Living retirement apartments. Supported Living, otherwise known as Assisted Living or Serviced Apartments offer the ideal choice when you need a little extra support without compromising your independence or freedom.

You can choose a range of options enabling you to stay independent and not prematurely enter an Aged Care Facility.
