your health condition needn't define your life
10 Care Studios are now available in our newly opened Puriri Home. Each Care Studio resident has the support of a focused health care team. As hospital-level care rooms, they are equipped to a high level with industry-leading care equipment, all of which provide the assistance for you to live your life as comfortably and independently as possible.
The core concept of the Eden Alternative is simple: Care environments are habitats for human beings that should promote health, wellbeing and growth rather than facilities where the frail and elderly stagnate and decline. It is the guiding philosophy at the centre of everything we do.

Residents who have chosen Knox as their home have almost, always been surprised at how much new opportunity they have found to live an even fuller life.
