Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Radius Waipuna is a specialist health and aged care facility for elderly and disabled citizens. We are part of a New Zealand owned and operated company that is committed to providing quality rest home and private hospital care for people who require help in their daily lives.

Radius Waipuna is one of 22 Radius facilities around New Zealand. We are situated on a hill overlooking the very pretty Panmure Basin in Mt Wellington, Auckland.

We take our responsibility seriously and aim to provide a place people can happily call home. It is important to us that residents have as much independence as they are capable of and are living enriched lives. We believe we are here to support residents to achieve meaningful goals and we will do this through skilled, committed and respectful care.

Our facility is built on a frame work of Compassion, Courage and Committment, provided by exceptional people and exceptional care (EPEC). We really want to share our EPEC philosophy with you and welcome your enquiry or feedback.

Radius Waipuna is in an unusual building built in a circle. This allows a wonderful homely environment where residents and families and friends are able to move around freely. The central courtyard provides a private outdoor area for all to enjoy. There is a friendly relaxed atmosphere in a quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland that all visitors comment on.

'Radius Waipuna was the best possible place for my sister. She just loved it there. The staff were were so kind and caring.'

'I am sending this email to thank everyone who works at Waipuna. It is frightening for someone to be away from home in a strange place but thanks to each one of you who works to keep Waipuna running smoothly, I enjoyed my recent stay there and am looking forward to coming back soon.'
