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.
