Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village
Joined Ryman in XXXX
I consider myself fortunate to be employed by Ryman Healthcare. I have worked in the aged care sector overseas and can only say that the supportive management and leadership, the beautiful surroundings in which I work, my employment conditions and my access to professional development are not things I have experienced elsewhere.
Since joining Ryman I have completed a National Certificate and if I wanted to I would be supported to undertake RN training.
If you see yourself in this sector it is without hesitation I suggest you make contact with Ryman Healthcare.

Joined Ryman in:
I joined Ryman as a nursing graduate (qualified in the Philippines) and have really appreciated the professional support I have received. Ryman has presented me with opportunities that have seen my skills and capabilities enhanced. I come from a family oriented nation and so, it was natural for me to care for the family of others especially those in the later stages of their life. I work in a professional, high quality and warm working environment where caring for the aged has become not just work but a personal commitment.

Joined Ryman in July 2008
Originally employed as a Senior Care Assistant at Grace Joel Village in Auckland I am a recipient of Ryman’s Foreign Trained Nurses Scholarship. They paid for me to complete my ACE course and later assisted me with Nursing Council Registration.
Ryman offer their employees so much support. You know you will not be left to do things alone, they will be there with all the professional and personal support you need. Working now as a Registered Nurse I feel I am giving back to Ryman what they have given me. My gratitude will always be with them.
Aged Care has been a major transition for me. We don’t have retirement homes in the Philippines so I had not encountered things like dementia, death and dying. Personally I feel Filipino’s are innately caring. When asked by people “how I can do my job” I simply say “I treat the residents as if they are my own lolo or lola (grandparents)”.
Now a Registered Nurse in New Zealand I have gained my permanent residency and I am able to provide financial assistance for my family in the Philippines. Relocating to New Zealand was not easy but Ryman has always been there for me.
