The Ryman Triple A Programme stands for ‘Ageless, Active and Aware’. By keeping people physically active and well-tuned, and providing them with the information and skills required to lead healthy lifestyles, Ryman aims to promote the continuing physical health, independence and quality of life for the people living in their Retirement Communities.
Nicki Brown, Ryman Triple A Programme Coordinator explains: "The programme is provided free to all residents in every Ryman Village and has classes to cater for all levels of ability. The programme has exceeded all expectations and continues to grow in popularity with over 1000 residents participating at least twice per week in Ryman Villages nationwide. Our residents have realised the tremendous benefits the programme has provided and continue to notice significant gains in their overall health and wellbeing. As well as the regular classes, events are run through the course of the year that also promote keeping our brains and minds active with community awareness topics and activities to stimulate the brain."
Susan Bowness, Ryman's North Island Regional Manager adds: "Ryman residents and managers have been delighted by the success of the programme and the reported health benefits it is delivering to residents".
