Estia Health Leopold (formerly known as Leopold Lodge) is a warm, inviting and social community that is set in its own delightful gardens, just 15 minutes from the Geelong town centre.
The home-style ambience is supported by caring staff – many of whom have been at the residence for many years – and a commitment to providing personalised care and attention to every resident.
While independence is readily encouraged, a genuine sense of community and social interaction is enthusiastically embraced by those who call Estia Health Leopold (formerly known as Leopold Lodge) home.
Shaded courtyards, a range of indoor living areas and extra touches such as a billiards alcove in our ‘men’s area’ make Estia Health Leopold a pleasant place to be.
Our range of amenities means that residents don’t have to venture far to enjoy their comforts or to take part in one of our many lifestyle activities. Pampering is available in our on-site salon, and gardeners enjoy our raised veggie plots in the warmer months. Regular visits from the local primary school are enjoyed by everyone and reflect our community spirit.
Accessibility to all areas is a feature of this single-level home, which also offers the convenience of private visitor parking.
Well-balanced and nutritious meals are freshly prepared and cooked on site under the supervision of our professional chefs. A wide variety of health and wellbeing programs, designed by qualified coordinators, are tailored to each resident’s personal needs.
Allied health professionals such as physiotherapists and podiatrists are part of our support team, and hairdressers are on site as required. Pastoral care is also available.
Importantly, we offer exceptional levels of care and service. Our staff are on call 24 hours a day to help out where required or just to share a quiet chat.
