Just a 10-minute drive North of Timaru, Radius Elloughton Gardens is a stately old homestead, originally built in 1893 and steeped in South Canterbury history, and Radius Care’s residents appreciate the convenience of its Marchwiel location, and enjoy dining in the homestead, which offers sea views on one side and mountain views on the other.
This beautiful facility has extensive gardens, including three courtyards with entertainment and BBQ areas for residents, their families and friends to enjoy. Their brand new hospital wing opened in 2017, enhancing Radius Care’s ability to provide state-of-the-art hospital care. Natural light beams through their rooms, hallways, and the spacious living areas where friends and family can gather. Additionally, a number of their rooms open out to their own patio.
Their caring Radius Elloughton Gardens team fosters a friendly family atmosphere between residents, families and staff, and it is important to them that you feel valued when you choose to make Radius Elloughton Gardens home. Additionally, their facility’s proximity to Radius Elloughton Village makes it easy for couples and friends with differing care needs to maintain close ties.
