Set amidst three-and-a-half acres of park-like grounds, and just 10 minutes from Whangarei’s CBD, Radius Rimu Park integrates rest home, private hospital, dementia, palliative and respite care.
Encompassed by beautifully landscaped grounds and mature trees, Radius Rimu Park’s courtyards, planter boxes and a sensory garden provide a tranquil environment that encourages residents and their family and friends to linger and spend time together. The open plan lounge and dining room are designed to capture the sun and create a warm, comfortable atmosphere. Individual rooms can be decorated according to personal taste, and we encourage residents to bring a special piece of furniture that is dear to their hearts and make their room their own.
The wide range of services Radius Rimu Park offers to our residents includes dementia care. We provide a secure home for residents living with dementia, and for whom there may be safety concerns and possible behaviour issues. And to assist all our residents to feel secure and settled, our Rimu Park Family Support Group volunteers are on hand, happy to provide advice and suggestions, or simply a friendly chat over a cup of tea.

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.
Sue Billington started her nursing career working at Whangarei Hospital. Her first aged care management position was right here at Rimu Park 23 years ago, working as a nursing tutor. It was there she developed a passion for aged care nursing and management.
Sue is thrilled to return to Whangarei after seven years in the role of Facility Manager in Auckland. The birth of her granddaughter Aliya encouraged Sue’s move back to her hometown of Whangarei. Sue was delighted to find some of the staff she worked with 23 years ago are still at Rimu Park. She believes her journey has come ‘full circle’ and is glad to be home.
Sue enjoys working alongside the fantastic team at Rimu Park, helping provide excellent care – with love and respect – to our residents and extended whānau in Rimu Park’s homely environment.
