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

Visitors with limitations - please call us first
Located on a quiet street overlooking the stunning Waitakere Ranges, Everil Orr offers options for both aged care and retirement living, with one, two and two-plus-bedroom apartments for independent living, and a range of standard and premium care rooms.

Just like Mt Albert, Everil Orr is a welcoming and family-friendly community. From the smiley staff who greet you in the hallways, to the comfortable living spaces, you’ll feel right at home. Our main lounge is a lively hub of activity. Follow the music and laughter to find a friend to chat to, or to join in the day’s events. Or if it’s peace and quiet you crave, relax in a comfy chair with a book in one of our many cosy nooks.

You couldn’t ask for a more convenient location. Right around the corner from Mt Albert Village, you’re spoilt for choice with a range of cafes and eateries. Lynn mall and St Lukes mall are less than 10 minutes away, as are the local pools and library. Enjoy high tea at historic Alberton house, or a paddle at Pt. Chev beach. You're free to come and go as you please and we encourage you to stay connected with family and community.

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.

We don’t have visiting hours at Everil Orr because we know it’s important you stay connected to your community. It’s home, so friends and family can join you anytime for a cuppa and catch up. We’re just around the corner from the Motorway, so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes.

Hop in the village van for a jaunt, you’ll never know where it will take you next. Hot chips on the ferry to Devonport, or off to browse the shops at Lynnmall, there’s an exciting destination each week. We're always keen to explore so suggestion are always welcome, or if it’s music you’re in to, enjoy your own personalised playlist with I Love Music. Furry friends, family BBQs, competitive games and theme days, there’s something for everyone no matter what you’re interested in.

Tender Sunday roasts, hot fish and chips and scrummy homemade puddings… there’s a reason why we’ve won awards for our food! 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 be up for second helpings!

Award Winning Care
Great care is what we do and we’ve got the paper to prove it. Oceania’s won multiple supreme awards from the New Zealand Aged Care Association, so you can be sure you’re in good hands. When it comes to your care, you know what you like and don’t like - and we want to know 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.

Complements to the Kitchen team for their attention to detail especially at Happy Hour. PB

The Queens Birthday Celebrations were great. Activity staff had gone to so much trouble with the Fashion parade. The bunting and balloons were lovely. The Samoan language week was a great success with the end celebration of singing and traditional dancing. Everyone was so happy.

Please let everyone now how pleased I am with the cleanliness and cleaning skills of your Housekeeping team.

In this time of uncertainty, with Covid, with restrictions, with lock downs, not to mention the small matter of Mums compromised health, she remains cheerful , delighted and appreciative of all you- the lovely Team there. MM

Words cannot express the loving care and kindness you all gave to my Mum. You are all angels - L.L.

You gave my Mother such wonderful care and I loved the nice way staff spoke not only to the residents and families but to each other. My Mother enjoyed being here at Everil Orr- B.H.

The staff cared for my Mother so kindly and they gave her love, laughed with her, talked to her, shared their lives with her and made her last months, weeks, days very secure and happy - B.A.D.B

I would just like to say I have had nothing but positive experiences with your facility. Your staff are both polite and helpful and reassuring. They take the time to talk to me, provide me with helpful information so that I can feel reassured that my Mother is getting only the best of care. I know she is being treated with respect and dignity and for that I am truly grateful - C.

Just wanted to pass on how much we enjoyed the Christmas party and to congratulate all the staff on such an enormous effort. You are a special group of people at Everil Orr -G.N.

I am always amazed by your kindness, patience and friendliness while you looked after my Father. He was not an easy resident at times but your faithful care ensured that he was comfortable. He had many visits to the hospital but he always looked forward to coming home to Everil Orr again - T.B.
