A Local Care Charity with Family Values

Everwood is a charity that exists solely to provide high-quality care for older people in our community. 

Little Haven is a home for 41 residents with a mix of residential and Nursing Care and is situated just a short stroll from the village of Dibden Purlieu, within easy reach of Hythe and its ferry crossing to Southampton.

The en-suite rooms are all light, airy and benefit from stunning views of the gardens, an acre of wood and terraced gardens. The home has a Coffee Shop, Movie/Arts & Crafts room, Hair salon and Home Pub in house for residents to enjoy.

Residents are continually encouraged to continue with their everyday routines from walks in the park to collecting their own morning paper.

Our person-centred care at our care home in Dibden Purlieu ensures residents receive the respect and attention they deserve at all times.

We have an excellent activities programme, available 7 days a week, which includes a wide range of classes, entertainment, and outings. Little Haven has very good connections with its local community and residents are regularly able to attend local events and lunches


Whether it’s wet or dry outside, at Everwood we believe that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment for our residents to live in.

Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us at Little Haven Care Home. We have a dedicated Lifestyle Manager who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provides a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.

We are also fortunate to have the support of many volunteers of all ages from the local community, strengthening our links to this thriving town.
