Centrally-located and only 2 minutes’ drive from New Plymouth city centre, Radius Heatherlea integrates rest home, private hospital, dementia, palliative and respite care. We are a 54-bed facility, with 34 rest home beds, including 18 premium rooms with ensuites. Our dedicated, secure Dementia unit has its own protected garden setting.

Freshly-decorated, our warm and comfortable environment encourages friends and family to come together. Natural light floods the facility and artworks line the hallways between spacious common areas. Residents love our aviaries–we have one indoor, and two outdoor aviaries taking pride of place on our property. The outdoor aviaries are home to colourful exotic birds, including Barrabands, Splendours, Budgies, Cockatiels, Lorikeets and Ringneck Parrots, and our indoor aviary houses our beautiful canaries. The entertaining antics of the birds provide much amusement, with the Barrabands even mimicking the ringtone of our phones. Our residents love tending to our birds, helping us feed them and clean their cages.

Radius Heatherlea offers the best in rest home and respite care in a social and stimulating environment with great food, a range of activities and events, and caring and qualified staff.
