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.

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.
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.
