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)
Eversley is a well-known landmark in Hastings, boasting a gracious, old charm, with stunning courtyards and chandeliers. Eversley is a boutique Care Centre with a big heart, and our team go out of their way to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere where both residents and their families feel at home.

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’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.

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.

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!

Oceania is a leading provider of premium healthcare services in New Zealand. With over 40 locations across the country, we’ve been part of local communities for over 50 years. We’re recognised as industry leaders in care, winning awards for innovation, food, staff training and community engagement.

When it comes to your care, you know what you like and what you don’t like – and we want to know your preferences too. Because everyone is different, all of our residents get a personalised care plan, so from meals to medications; everything that’s important to you is covered.
