Tamahere Eventide is a Ministry of Health certified aged care provider with a 4 year certification level
The Tamahere Eventide Rest Home embodies our belief that all of our elderly residents deserve appreciation of and respect for their contribution to society. We seek to honour our Rest Home members’ self-worth and abilities, while providing care and support to assist them in their day-to-day lives.
Each of our Rest Home residents enjoy a comfortable single-bedded room, with central heating, a chest of drawers wardrobe, hand-basin and an over-the-bed table for their daily breakfast-in-bed. Our tasty meals are prepared by the excellent catering team, who can provide for all dietary requirements.
Our residents are encouraged to socialise in one of the four lounges, where they can meet with new friends or spend time with visiting family members. Those who prefer the literary lifestyle can enjoy our well-stocked library, or they have the option to participate in one of our regular outings.
With an emergency call system in each bedroom, our hallways and bathrooms fitted with sturdy support rails, smoke detectors and fire sprinklers, the Tamahere Eventide Rest Home is a safe environment that provides for the needs of our residents. Rooms are also fitted with a telephone to enable family and friends to contact residents at their convenience.
Our staff – including a qualified nurse on each shift – care for each individual within our community, seeking to help them live a high-quality, comfortable life that supports them physically, socially and spiritually.
Wifi is available throughout the building for those who enjoy the internet or use Skype.
We provide specialist care for older people who have been assessed as needing dementia specialised care/interventions. Staff are supervised by RN’s, receive appropriate training and have competencies tested ensuring that care is delivered in a safe and timely manner.
As an experienced provider of dementia care, we understand the effects of dementia on our residents and their families. Knowing this, we strive to make our Dementia Care Services as comfortable and supportive as possible, surrounded by beautiful gardens and attractive shaded areas.

We offer specialised care for residents who need 24/7 registered nursing care. Special care needs are professionally managed and we undertake to meet age related physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs. Resident’s safety is promoted.
The care is delivered and supervised by RN’s who are trained, experienced and competent in delivering these special services.
Staffing numbers reflect good practice guidelines and the skill mix is relevant to the resident’s care needs. Staff receive ongoing training through our in-service education sessions and training programmes.
