Testimonials
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.'
