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

The scenic surrounds you’re after. Nestled down a quiet, leafy street, close to the heart of Paraparaumu, Eldon offers a choice of standard and premium care rooms including Care Suites, which means there are options to suit your needs and budget.

If it’s scenic surrounds you’re after, then Eldon is the place to be. With the golf club to our south, and hills and bush on the east and west boundaries, there’s no shortage of peaceful places where you can sit and enjoy the great outdoors. And here on the Kapiti Coast, we’re lucky enough to be close to miles and miles of beautiful and easily-accessible beaches, which we often visit on our van trips. Eldon is just a few minutes’ drive from central Paraparaumu, which has a number of cafes and restaurants perfect for catching up with family and friends.

Eldon is known for its warm, homely environment and friendly staff, who go out of their way to make residents feel like part of the family. There’s always something happening in the main lounges for those who enjoy socialising, as well as plenty of cosy nooks to relax with a cuppa and a book.

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.

Care Suites provide both Rest Home and Hospital level care, which means you can relax knowing you won’t have the upheaval of moving again if your needs increase. All Care Suites have a heat pump and full en-suite, as well as a kitchenette with a fridge and a kettle – perfect for making a cuppa when friends and family come to visit.You own the right to occupy your Care Suite, so you can personalise it with your favourite furniture and treasured pieces. A DHB assessment is not required for care that is paid for privately.

Hop in our van for a jaunt, you’ll never know where it will take you next. A scenic drive through the countryside, shopping trips or picnics in the park, there’s an exciting new destination each week. Or if it’s music you’re into, enjoy some me-time listening to your own personalised playlist with our award-winning I Love Music programme.

Tender Sunday roasts, hot fish and chips and scrummy homemade puddings…there’s a reason why the dining room is full before dinner! All of the above are regular features on our menu, which is packed with tasty family favourites you’d make at home. You’ll be sure to want second helpings!
