Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.
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.
