Tucked amidst mature native and exotic trees, Radius Peppertree is located just minutes from the centre of Palmerston North on Roberts Line in Kelvin Grove.
Radius Peppertree provides rest home, private hospital, respite, palliative and young disabled care. We take pride in providing the best aged care possible, while also offering a social and stimulating environment with great food, entertaining activities, and caring staff. At Radius Peppertree our motto is “We work in your home”—a care philosophy that positively influences every aspect of the relationships between our staff, our residents, and their families.
Our seven-day activity rosters, with a variety of outings and events on offer, ensure residents can continue to enjoy their passions as well as discover new ones. Two outdoor courtyards provide a tranquil, beautiful space to sit and admire our colourful gardens or the birds in our aviary. We have a busy, active garden club, and as part of the Save the Bees campaign, our residents have installed beehives and planted loads of flowers to keep the bees happy. We love tasting the honey from our own hives. We’re a big believer in pet therapy; along with our regular canine visitors, we have a kitten fostering programme in partnership with our local SPCA.
Inside, our wide hallways are decorated with a variety of artworks and open into the light, airy common areas. Our well-sized bedrooms have plenty of space to accommodate personal furnishings, as well as call bells to ensure our residents feel safe and secure, whilst enjoying the privacy of their own personal space. Give us a call to arrange a time to come and discuss your situation with us, or feel free to drop in for a chat. We can help you make the right decision for you or your loved one.

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.
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.
Hello and welcome to Radius Peppertree.
During my career, I have worked predominately in elder care, elder mental health and mental health services. I studied in the UK, moved to NZ in 2005 and have been the Facility Manager at Radius Peppertree since mid-2022.
At Peppertree, we focus on delivering quality care while eliminating loneliness, helplessness and boredom by creating opportunities, meaningful engagement and spontaneity.
I also enjoy organic horticulture, yoga and meditation, and spending time with my family, including five grandchildren.
