Radius Althorp is located at Pyes Pa in Tauranga, just 20 minutes from the popular Mt Maunganui beach. Integrating rest home, hospital, respite, dementia, and palliative care, Radius Althorp sets the benchmark for aged care when a residential solution is required.
Radius Althorp’s healthcare is all encompassing, putting people first. Our in-patient service offers respite care, palliative care, rehabilitation and long-term aged residential care at Hospital, Rest Home, Dementia and Psychogeriatric levels. We offer outpatient services to the general public, including a physiotherapy assessment and treatment (both ACC and non-ACC), and hydrotherapy. We also offer Tai Chi classes and Keep On Your Feet strength and balance classes to assist with any pain issues, and to keep everyone in top form. Our dedicated activities coordinators keep residents engaged and busy with regular indoor activities, as well as museum and “Big Day Out” beach outings, ice creams on the boardwalk, exploring local parks, garden walks, sightseeing, and even train rides and the odd spot of cricket. The team looks forward to the Annual Winter Ball, which is always great fun.
Because light plays a vital role in the health of our residents and staff, we ensure all rooms offer plenty of natural lighting. Each wing has spacious living areas, where residents, family and friends can gather. We are aged care specialists; we pride ourselves in providing an excellent standard of nursing and care services to our residents, their families and whānau.

For residents with dementia we offer specifically targeted services, specialist staff and secure environments to ensure maximum wellbeing and safety at all times.
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.
