A lot can be said through our hands — a welcome, a goodbye, a friendly embrace, a playful gesture, a sign of affection, or just the delivery of a cup of tea.

At Radius Peppertree, we offer more than just an extra set of hands; we strive to improve your life at the stage you're at.

Tucked behind native and exotic trees, Radius Peppertree is just minutes from Palmerston North's centre on Roberts Line, Kelvin Grove. While close to all the main traffic routes, Radius Peppertree provides a peaceful environment away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Our care team is ready to welcome you home and embrace you as a valued community member.

The team at Radius Peppertree fosters a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, making it feel like a second family.

Staying Connected
Peppertree offers a personal free Wi-Fi connection for residents to stay connected with loved ones, access news, shop online, and stream movies or TV shows.
They also provide a phone package that includes a rented phone with oversized buttons and covers all mobile and toll calls for $35 a month. Residents can bring their existing phone numbers with them when they move in.

Our Food
At Peppertree, the kitchen prepares fresh, nutritious meals that are tasty and inviting.
There are three main meals and snacks throughout the day. The menu is on a four-week cycle and is designed with residents in mind and approved by a dietician.
Fish and chips on Fridays and roast lamb, pork, and beef are the most popular dishes. Special dietary requirements can be accommodated.

Peppertree offers an extensive activity programme that promotes self-esteem and personal fulfilment.
They aim to stimulate cognitive functioning, nurture their residents, and provide purposeful activities that result in full and enriched lives full of fun, laughter, and smiles. A focus for our residents for several years now has been saving the bees, which has involved a lot of planting by our gardening club... we also have our bee hives on site!
This is a rewarding experience for everyone involved.
