Radius Baycare is located in a tranquil, rural park setting at Haruru Falls, just a few minutes’ drive from Paihia in the beautiful Bay of Islands.

At Radius Baycare, rest home, private hospital, palliative, and young disabled care are offered by our caring staff, who provide a lively social atmosphere where family and friends are welcome to visit at any time. Lounges and other communal spaces are designed to create cosy places to relax, socialise, and gather to celebrate achievements and milestones. Bedrooms are light and bright, looking out over the extensive park-like grounds and gardens, and we encourage our residents to personalise their rooms with their favourite possessions—making our home, their home.

Each week our dedicated activities coordinator creates a new roster of fun, stimulating activities, and our team prides themselves on ensuring our residents have every opportunity to continue their individual hobbies and interests. Golf championships, baking, outings, and our annual “Grand Day” when we host residents’ grandchildren, are just a few of the variety of events on offer. Radius Baycare integrates the best of home living and ongoing hospital care, catering for older adults, as well as younger people requiring special care.
