Radius St Helenas is centrally-located, right on the edge of the Christchurch CBD, close to main arterial routes. Our rest home and hospital care facility provide ‘round-the-clock care for those who can no longer manage entirely on their own.
Our care home is single-storeyed and has been designed to be easily accessible. All rest home bedrooms have full ensuites for comfort and privacy, allowing our residents to be as independent as possible. We have two lovely outdoor courtyards with surrounding gardens, which provide sheltered areas to enjoy the fresh air. In the summer months, these are the favourite places for our residents to have a BBQ, or to do a spot of gardening in the raised garden beds.
Our activities coordinator schedules new activities and outings every week, ensuring our residents can continue to enjoy their passions and interests. We have an extensive programme of social activities, including live music, arts and crafts, quiz nights, and themed functions, such as our Cultural Day, to keep you motivated and entertained.
At Radius St Helenas our caring and qualified staff are focussed on offering the best care possible, in a social and stimulating environment.

Rest Home Care
Our rest homes cater to those who are mostly independent but may require some assistance with personal care and general day-to-day activities.
Hospital level care is provided for those residents who have a significant disability and medical concerns.
Short-term stays, or respite care services, are available to those who are unwell (eg, recovering from an illness or hospital stay) or who simply are in need of extra support.
For those nearing the end of their lives, specialist medical services and clinical staff are available to meet ongoing comfort and care requirements.
As a caregiver, I was drawn to St Helenas because of its homely environment, experienced staff, and friendly residents. Every day presented new learning opportunities, and engaging with residents and their families and getting to know their life stories was my favourite part of the job.
After expanding my family, I returned to work as an Office Manager and now serve as the Facility Manager. Both roles have allowed me to interact with families and staff, address various subjects, and help our residents in many different ways. These opportunities provided me with a deeper understanding of how St Helenas operates, and I cherish every moment.
Before moving to New Zealand in 2016, I worked in retail and international business for many years and learned to read, write, and speak English at an early age. Although I have not yet completed my studies in Law, Social Communication, and Management, I plan to finish them when my children are older.
As someone passionate about caring for others, I am proud to be part of the St Helenas family. We offer a loving and caring environment that supports and cares for our residents every step of the way. Come and experience the warm and friendly atmosphere that we provide.
