Our Business Model

We offer our residents:

  • A Home
  • Community
  • Companionship
  • Security
  • Peace of Mind
  • Care

We do this by designing, developing and operating unique retirement villages throughout New Zealand and Australia. Our aim is to ensure that our residents, and their families, are delighted with their decision to live in a Ryman village.

What makes us unique is that Ryman-designed and built villages offer a comprehensive range of options to our residents, all within one location:

Independent Living

  • Typically two bedroom townhouse or apartments
  • Property services and community activities

Assisted Living in Serviced Apartments

  • One bedroom or studio apartments with a kitchenette
  • Housekeeping & Meals (plus care packages)

Resthome / Hospital / Dementia aged care beds

Village Centre and Community Facilities


This means that our residents can remain in the village as their care needs change, and receive a broad range of care all within one specially designed site.

Across all of our villages the independent living residents are typically 79 years of age on entry, while the assisted living residents are typically 86+ years of age. The resthome and hospital residents are typically 84 years of age on entry.

This means that currently our new residents were born in the 1920s or early 1930s.

Note: Independent and Assisted Living units are referred to by us as “retirement village units”.
