Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Located right beside the beautiful Cornwall Park in Hastings, Eversley is a well-established Care Centre with a mix of standard and premium care rooms. Eversley offers senior care at dementia, rest home and hospital care levels.

There are 17 dementia care beds at this senior care facility.

Your room is your own private space, so you can decorate it with your favourite pictures and ornaments. Standard rooms are large enough for a single bed, a chair and a wardrobe or chest of drawers. The cost of a standard room is included in the Care Services Fee set by the DHB. Premium rooms have additional features such as more space, an ensuite bathroom or outdoor access, but you’ll need to pay an extra amount per day to cover the cost of these premium features.

Eversley’s location is truly idyllic, surrounded by beautiful, mature trees, looking out over the stunning Cornwall Park stream. And being so close to the park certainly has its advantages, with easy walks, beautiful gardens, bird aviaries and a children’s play area right on our doorstep – not to mention frequent visits from duck families and other wildlife.

Eversley is conveniently located close to State Highway 2, making it easy for friends and family to pop by or get you out and about. Local shops and eateries are just a short walk away, so you don’t have to travel far to go for a coffee or grab the essentials.
