Highveld Gardens Retirement Lodge was established in 1985. It’s been in operation as a family care facility ever since. Current owners, John and Shona Le Roux, are assisted by their son, Daniel. Together they lead a team of competent staff, which consists of two nursing sisters, Rebeca and Yvonne, three staff nurses, two auxiliary nurses, 32 care givers and general manager, Monica.
We handpick our staff for their unique abilities to fulfill the needs of our residents and provide professional nursing care… regardless of the age, race, affiliation, gender or health status of each resident. We strive to make every resident feel at home, including being pet-friendly, and we value their independence.
Highveld Gardens Retirement Lodge is an oasis, situated between Pretoria and Johannesburg, in the suburb Halfway Gardens. Close to Waterfall, Mall of Africa and Hospitals, shops and we’re within easy access for family members travelling from either metropole.
