Radius St Joans is located in the Hamilton residential suburb of Fairfield, just 5 minutes’ walk from town.
Set on three-and-a-half acres of tranquil, park-like grounds, St Joans integrates rest home and private hospital care with palliative, respite, and some young disabled care. The beautiful gardens that surround our facility provide a variety of places to sit in the sun and relax with a cuppa. During the summer months our residents enjoy strolling around the grounds, listening to the distinctive calls of the native tuis.
We offer a variety of bedroom sizes, and all are temperature-controlled. Beyond the bedrooms, the interior of our facility is designed to make the most of the sunshine, and has been decorated to create a warm, comfortable ambiance. From furniture to the occasional pet, we understand that familiar things are comforting, and we encourage our residents to bring along beloved items to make their room feel like home. Our 24-hour visiting policy enables family and friends to spend as much time with loved ones as possible, ensuring they remain an integral part of their loved one’s life.
We’re proud that many of our dedicated, caring team have been with Radius Care for 10+ years. So when you or your family member requires closer attention and care, call us, and arrange a time to come in and discuss your situation. We can help you make the right decision for you and your family.

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.
