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.

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.
Knox excellence wins at Westpac Business Awards

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.

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 $300,000, one of our Care Studios could be yours.
Friday October 4 saw Knox transformed into a buzzing scene of nightlife in Italy.
Family, friends and volunteers all joined us for an evening of immersion into the Italian culture.
Many aspects Italian were displayed from the photo booth with famous 16th century Venetian Masquerade Ball Masks, to Frank Sinatra songs from our talented live band, to our beautiful café- styled lounge adorned with fairy lights and beautiful displays to add some magic to the evening.
All of these aspects added to the atmosphere of this fantastic night. Thank you to everyone who attended.
Save the date for our next big event, the annual Children's Christmas party. Saturday 7 December is a huge day of celebration and family fun at Knox. We hope you will join us.
