Exceptional People Exceptional Care            

Location: Radius Lexham Park, 3 Binnie Road, Katikati, Bay of Plenty

Radius Lexham Park is located in the delightful Bay of Plenty country town of Katikati, a stone’s throw from the local harbour, beaches, gardens and rural bush walks, and only a 30-minute drive from Tauranga and Mt Maunganui. We provide home living and ongoing hospital care for older adults as well as some younger disabled people who may require specialist healthcare.

Our residents have the freedom to come and go as they please, and friends and family are welcome anytime. Pets are also free to visit, and our home’s cat loves the attention from residents. The guys in our men’s club like to keep fit and active, and have built outdoor garden beds, which are now home to hotly-contested veggie-growing competitions. Here at Radius Lexham Park we encourage residents to participate in local community events, so regular outings and visits from local schools and entertainers play an important part in our social calendar. We also offer a variety of activities which bring residents together to socialise and enjoy some good-natured competition.
