Beautifully situated in a quiet city street Leslie Groves Rest Home provides 34 beds for those assessed as requiring rest home level residential care.

All rooms are single rooms with most having shared ensuites. These rooms are all considered “Standard” Rooms however there are several "Premium" rooms that attract additional charges - please enquire for further details.

Both individual and group activities are provided daily and planned to meet the needs of all residents. Our activities staff also offer regular events, trips, outings and visits from local entertainers.

Our chaplain visits regularly and interdenominational services are held weekly.

"Home cooked" style meals and snacks are prepared at the Leslie Groves Hospital and laundry is undertaken by Leslie Groves staff.

We value the dignity and self worth of the people we support and encourage them to retain control of their lives as much as possible. The people we care for will be encouraged in their individuality as we cherish the richness of diversity.
