During the Pandemic of 2020-21, Eversley found time to confront major issues for those ageing in Australia. Having already downsized her life to a retirement village, and wishing to be prepared for future challenges, she decided to explore the resources and gaps facing those needing more care over time. Her book, Stairways to Heaven, is part memoir, and both a light-hearted yet confronting journey through the maze many of us will one day face. The pandemic has proved pivotal in revealing weaknesses in our aged care system. Poetic and other reflections on the last phases of life help guide our way.
