Pioneering retirement living

Founded in Canterbury in 1984, Ryman has been pioneering retirement living in New Zealand for more than 35 years. We always have, and always will, challenge the status quo, and adapt to better serve our residents. And right now, that pioneering spirit is more important than ever, because there’s a new generation of Kiwis who are not retiring from life, they’re looking for a new way to live. 


Peace of Mind Guarantees

Our innovative approach to retirement living guides the Ryman Peace of Mind Guarantees. We have, and always will, offer resident-friendly terms designed to protect you and your family. Peace of mind is having certainty around costs, freedom and flexibility, a welcoming community, and care that can be dialled up as you need it.
