and loving it
Every day is an opportunity for continued growth, wellbeing and meaningful experience
Each crease on your face tells a story of rich experience that goes with a life well lived. Knox Home gives you the opportunity for that story to well and truly continue – because aging is less about decline and more about continuing to grow.
At our place there’s a little more understanding and care. There’s more companionship and joy. There are more new opportunities and worthwhile experiences to enjoy. Knox allows you to share in our busy community and simply relish more living.
Welcome to your place.
We are a little alternative
Knox is a care home and hospital in Epsom, Auckland for elders and younger adults who live with physical disability.
As a Charitable Trust with over 100 years of service to the Auckland community, Knox has never forgotten that our service to the community is about people.
In 2009 we adopted the Eden Alternative, a philosophy of care dedicated to placing elders at the centre of all we do. Eden Alternative principles uniquely guide us to transform the lives of our residents and team.
Every day is a gift. Our mission is to make sure we add more to the fulfillment and enjoyment of every single one.
Your health condition needn't define your life
Discover our Care Studios, where focused, supportive health care, comfortable surroundings and new opportunities are yours.

Water pipeline project impacts Ranfurly Rd access
Watercare is completing the Hunua 4 pipeline section from Campbell Road to Khyber Pass from now until 2020.
All visitors need to be aware of reduced access and parking opportunities in and around Knox. There is currently no access to Ranfurly Road from Manukau Road. The only access is from Market Road.
"My everyday care requires a huge amount of trust."
So does jumping out of a plane.
Claire has a wheelchair to get around, but that hasn’t stopped her ticking one more thing off her to-do list. Back in the 1980s Claire enjoyed solo skydiving and she had been reminiscing about it with residents and staff. A challenge from a counselling service to participate in their ‘Jump for Courage’ fundraiser saw Claire jump at the opportunity. She raised $1200 in pledges for the charity and thoroughly enjoyed the day with family, friends, residents and staff supporting and cheering her on.
City Mission Christmas Food Donations
This year Knox is collecting food donations for the Auckland City Mission’s family food parcels. This time of year is difficult for many families and the City Mission always has more demand for food parcels than they can supply.
We invite all members of the Knox Community – team members,
residents, families and volunteers to donate what they can.
These items are most helpful but all non-perishable items are appreciated!
Canned Baked Beans, Spaghetti, Tomatoes, Vegetables, Soup, Fruit, Meat and Fish. Plus Sauces, Creamed Rice etc. Jam, Peanut Butter, Honey,
Rice, Pasta, Cereal, Flour, Sugar, Teabags, UHT Milk, Toilet Roll, Soap and Shampoo.
The Knox donation box is located at Reception until Friday 20 December.
New Care Studios ready for purchase
The health condition you may have needn't define your life. Our brand new Care Studios have been designed to provide the security of hospital-level care from Registered Nurses and Care Partners.
We’ll also make sure there are still opportunities for new friendships, continued growth and meaningful experiences.
There are just 10 Care Studios available on level 2 of Puriri Home. The household has generous shared living spaces and ensuite bedrooms. And with great views and a sunny outlook from beautifully light and airy living spaces, it really is a lovely place to be.
From $190,000 to $200,000, one of our Care Studios could be yours.
Knox families Christmas party
a ton of fun
The annual Children's Christmas Party on Saturday 7 December was brilliant. Brilliant sunny weather and brilliant fun.
Farm animals, face painting, bouncy castle, activities, icecream and bbq – how much better could it get? Of course it did when Santa delivered gifts to the children!
If smiles are some measure of pleasure then the resident's and Knox team families clearly had a great time.
It really is such a rewarding day for us all. We are once again so grateful to our super hairdresser Maylene, who brings her farm animals in for the day.
