Thank you

To Jane and all staff,
Just to formalize my feedback to you all.
After many years with both Maeroa Lodge and Kensington,
I am happy to inform you that my recent stay was terrific and enjoyable.
Why? Because I enjoyed participating in the daily activities and in particular the very friendly & helpful staff.
Cheers Paul Kurtich

My experience

I found the service at Kensington to be beyond reproach. The friendly caring staff looked after my relative with the utmost interest and care. They all knew my name, when I visited and were very approachable. The facilities were clean and tidy at all times, while providing a warm and care atmosphere. I have no hesitation in recommending this residential care facility and commend Jane Morgan on her competent organisation.

Radius Kensington is a modern 99 bed care facility providing rest home, hospital and dementia level care. Respite, palliative and young disabled care is also available.

Located near the quiet suburb of Forest Lake, residents at Kensington benefit from easy access to the city.

The rooms are bright and cosy, a number of which have ensuites available, including showers.

The hallways in the facility are wide and well-lit. The lounges provide a quiet and comfortable place for residents to relax.

Dear Brien,
My recent experience in Kensington was excellent care given to my mother, the staff were helpful and friendly towards my mother and my family this was greatly appreciated at the time of need.
The activities programme gave residents choices, the exercise circuit is something individual and fine dining by invitation is involving residents and families.
The nurse kept me informed of any concerns and the healthcare assistant attention to detail meeting my mothers care needs you could not fault, a credit to Jane Morgan Manager and her team of staff.
