Leighton House

Our home

We invite you to experience the special character of Leighton House

Leighton House provides the following levels of care:

  • Rest Home care
  • Continuing care

Leighton House is situated in spacious grounds with stunning views of the Waimata River and the two spectacularly-lit bridges which span it. Our beautiful gardens have sunny spots to sit in and abundant bird life. Extensive decks give residents an opportunity to sit outside and enjoy Gisborne’s sunny weather. The atmosphere is gentle, peaceful and accepting.

What they say about us


Transition to retirement home care can be a complicated and difficult process when dealing with the limitations of ageing. My recent experience in supporting and guiding my 93-year-old mother to a successful and happy outcome in this change in her life has been enlightening and reassuring and has seen her comfortably installed in Leighton House.

Jude Conway

The decision to approach Leighton House for Pa's care was based on a very high recommendation from my colleagues who had family members living in the facility.
