Radius St Helenas is centrally-located, right on the edge of the Christchurch CBD, close to main arterial routes. Our rest home and hospital care facility provide ‘round-the-clock care for those who can no longer manage entirely on their own.
Our facility is single-storeyed and has been designed to be easily accessible. All rest home bedrooms have full ensuites for comfort and privacy, allowing our residents to be as independent as possible. We have two lovely outdoor courtyards with surrounding gardens, which provide sheltered areas to enjoy the fresh air. In the summer months, these are the favourite places for our residents to have a BBQ, or to do a spot of gardening in the raised garden beds.
Our activities coordinator schedules new activities and outings every week, ensuring our residents can continue to enjoy their passions and interests. We have an extensive programme of social activities, including live music, arts and crafts, quiz nights, and themed functions, such as our Cultural Day, to keep you motivated and entertained.
At Radius St Helenas our caring and qualified staff are focussed on offering the best care possible, in a social and stimulating environment.

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.
facility manager - Experience in Aged Care: 12 years+
Jenny is a Registered Nurse from the Philippines. She started her nursing career in New Zealand 12 years ago.
It was at this time where she found her passion for caring for the elderly. She worked as a Clinical Manager for 6 years across Auckland and Tauranga and was part of the commissioning team for one of the first retirement villages in New Zealand that offered homely hotel services where the model of care was centred on resident’s choice and individuality.
Jenny then moved to Christchurch and started working in the community as a District Nurse to accommodate her young family. However, throughout this time, she always knew that her heart belonged in Aged Care. So, she decided it was time to get back to her element and joined Radius at St Helenas.
She enjoys getting to know residents and their families and finding ways to make their life the best it can be. She also believes that it is so important to have a happy team where they are appreciated and loved, as having a good work culture will directly impact the care we provide.
In her spare time, she enjoys camping, spending time with family, hikes, cooking and reading motivational books.
