Overlooking Mt Wellington and beautiful Panmure Basin, centrally-located Radius Waipuna integrates rest home, hospital, palliative and respite care.
Radius Waipuna is a restful haven, conveniently located just minutes from the motorway and a number of popular shopping centres, including Sylvia Park, one of the largest retail centres in the country. Our newly refurbished wings provide state-of-the-art facilities with plenty of natural lighting, along with spacious living areas for friends and family to gather. The landscaped grounds feature pathways through the gardens and outdoor seating areas, and we have a central courtyard playground area to entertain children visiting the facility.
Our home is your home: our caring, qualified staff provide a social and stimulating home-like environment. A new activities roster is created each week by our dedicated activities coordinator, encouraging residents to keep busy, and to continue exploring their individual passions and interests such as flower arranging, arts and crafts, and even hosting a morning market and art fair.
We have regular visits from local early learning centres, and the facility is often abuzz with visiting children, families and friends. At Radius Waipuna we take pride in being part of the wonderful, caring Mt Wellington community, and our residents regularly hold fund-raising events and donate the proceeds to worthy causes.

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.
