Highveld Gardens Retirement Lodge Pretoria



Overview

Highveld Gardens Retirement Lodge Pretoria has been in operation since 1985. It’s a family care facility run by owners, John and Shona Le Roux, assisted by Daniel, their son. They spearhead a dedicated team of compassionate staff, made up of two nursing sisters, Rebeca and Yvonne, three nurses, two auxiliary nurses, 32 care givers and Monica, the general manager.

Management handpicks the staff based on their unique abilities – with the aim of fulfilling the residents’ needs and providing professional nursing care… All residents are cared for regardless of age, gender, race, affiliation and health status. Each staff member strives to create an environment in which the residents’ independence is valued and a space in which they feel at home. They are welcome to have their pets with them too – another way that they feel right at home at Highveld Gardens Retirement Lodge Pretoria.

An oasis between Pretoria and Johannesburg, situated in the suburb of Halfway Gardens and close to the Mall of Africa, Waterfall, hospitals and shops – the location is perfect for ease of access for family members travelling from either metropole.

What to expect at Highveld Gardens Retirement Lodge Pretoria

There are 39 rooms with ensuite bathrooms, each with access to our beautifully manicured gardens. There are also 19 cottages with kitchenettes and ensuite bathrooms, 12 beds in our shared frail care centre, and 6 single rooms in the frail care.

All our accommodation includes a level of care (frail, mid or general care, depending on the needs of each resident). Specifically allocated caregivers provide 24-hour nursing care in all units and rooms. Each of our rooms also has a panic button and telephone to ensure residents’ needs are catered for at all times.

Residents enjoy three nutritious meals per day in the communal dining room. These are planned by dietitians and meticulously prepared by our in-house cooks. We provide tea and coffee at 10am, with scones or cake, and afternoon beverages at 3pm. Room service is also available at the discretion of the nursing sisters.

Laundry and cleaning services are also included, as well as all other nursing services. The doctor visits once a week, the physiotherapist is available on request, as is the social worker for individual chats.

Entertainment and activities are provided on a daily basis, including Bible study on Mondays, a visit to the hair dresser on Tuesdays followed by occupational therapy in the afternoon, group discussions with the social worker on Wednesdays, fun bingo on Wednesday afternoons, there’s transport to the shops on Thursdays, exercise classes on Fridays, and every second Friday is movie day! There are also church services for the different denominations on Sundays.  

Residents are safe with the 24-hour security programme in place, and the owners also stay on the property – ensuring everything is safe and sound for the residents.

Highveld Gardens Retirement Lodge Pretoria is not an old age home, but a friendly retirement lodge that specialises in care with dignity and respect. Contact us today.
