At Eventhorpe Rest Home and Hospital, we offer compassionate and respectful rest home, palliative and hospital care, as well as respite and carer support, and palliative care.

Our goal and commitment to you is to help you live the best life possible, supported physically, emotionally and socially and to be as independent as you wish.

At Eventhorpe our range of activities and entertainment offers a relaxed opportunity to keep busy, learn new skills and to get to know others. This also includes outings in our van. You can choose to get involved in as much or as little as you like. Some residents prefer to enjoy their own company in their bedroom. We will always respect this choice.

You can be sure of individual attention from staff who have a “whatever it takes” attitude to providing the support you need to make the most of life. Our wellness approach recognises individual's physical, social, cultural and spiritual needs.

We are based on Hamilton East, close to shopping and on a major bus route.
