Radius Kensington is a light, airy facility that integrates rest home, hospital, dementia, young disabled, palliative and respite care. Single-storeyed with a family-friendly atmosphere, wide hallways open into lounges that provide a comfortable place for residents to enjoy. Our rooms are bright and spacious, and a number have their own ensuites with showers; some bedrooms open straight out to one of our five internal courtyards, which feature raised garden beds and sheltered places to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Visiting hours ensure family and friends can spend as much time with loved ones as possible, and remain an integral part of their life. Our residents are treated as part of our family; it’s important to us that all residents feel at home at Radius Kensington, and feel safe, respected and valued.

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.
Young Disabled Care
Young Physically Disabled (YPD) care is available in certain locations, for those under 65 who require assistance with self-care, mobility and/or communication.
