With a 45 bed psychogeriatric dementia unit and a 15 bed secure dementia unit, Radius Althorp provides a safe and protective environment for dementia care residents and your loved ones while still offering independence and choice.
Both units exude a homely, lively and welcoming atmosphere with good indoor-outdoor flow and free access to generous outside spaces for daily walks, activities and plenty of fresh air.
Radius Althorp practices ‘person-centred care' so that each resident is living life to the fullest and celebrated and acknowledged for the unique individual they are. The staff are specifically trained to work with dementia residents, continuously focussing on ways to alleviate and respond to the feelings and emotions they experience.
Radius Althorp works closely with Tauranga Hospital's mental health services for older people to provide the best care particularly for those with high and complex needs. The hospital's specialist psychiatrist works collaboratively with our nursing team and GP.
Radius Althorp encourages families to stay actively involved with their loved ones living with them - even with the best care, the team can't replace family and the special knowledge and relationships built up over a lifetime.
