Our brand new Miriam Corban Retirement Village in Henderson will be located at 229 Lincoln Road. A superb site with a bus stop right outside the village and very close to motorway access. Two supermarkets and local shops are close by and the Waitakere hospital is only a short drive away.
This central West Auckland location boasts local wineries, stunning beaches and the Waitakere ranges with all the delights the regional park has to offer.
The village will provide a lifestyle option to suit everyone; including townhouse and apartment living, assisted living in a serviced apartment and the very best of resthome, hospital and dementia care.
The amenities will include an all-weather bowling green, heated indoor swimming pool and spa, gym, beauty and hairdressing salon, movie theatre, library, and even a café.
There will always be something to do at the village, with activities and events to suit everyone; from organised events and shopping trips, to activities that inspire movement. It will certainly be a place where you can live life to the full.
Miriam Corban Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our apartments and townhouses will be light and spacious, with clean lines and a clever open plan design layout that provides an easy flow throughout.
If down the track you need more support, we will offer assisted living in a serviced apartment and a full range of care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialled up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference.
Our pioneering approach to retirement living includes resident-friendly terms designed to protect you and your family. Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment or townhouse*, and our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.
These are just some of the ways we’re pioneering a new way of living for a new retirement generation.
*Some conditions apply.

Community is central to the lifestyle so we will offer amenities that encourage that sense of togetherness, such as a café, dining room, bar, hair and beauty salon.

Care is not an ‘add on’ at a Ryman village, it is built into the fabric of our villages from the very beginning. It’s comforting for couples and friends to know they can still be near each other even if their health needs are different.
Miriam Corban care centre will offer a full range of care options including resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care. Like all aspects of our villages, we constantly look for ways to improve both the care we provide and the innovation behind it. Care is customised using our myRyman care app and residents love the food in our seasonal Delicious menu, which is prepared fresh on site by village chefs.
Personal attention, warmth and building trusting relationships are all crucial to the customised care we provide at our care centres.

Right outside the village are two bus stops and motorway access to both Auckland CBD and the North Shore is only a short drive away.
That’s why each Ryman village is named after a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer. Anthony Wilding, Lady Diana Isaac, Evelyn Page to name a few. They lived with passion and purpose, they pushed further, they went beyond the ordinary. That’s exactly what we strive to do every day at Ryman. To pioneer a new way of living, for a new retirement generation.
Miriam Corban Retirement Village is named after a woman who is inextricably linked to Henderson and the west of Auckland through the winemaking legacy of her grandfather Assid Abraham Corban, a Lebanese immigrant who established Mount Lebanon Vineyards in Henderson in 1902.
Born on 20 July 1927 in Wellington, Miriam Khouri settled in Henderson in 1948 after she married Assid Khaleel Corban, also a descendant of the same winemaking pioneer.
Both Miriam and Assid were raised to value family and taking an active part in serving their community, and this they did with great energy.
Assid served as a West Auckland councillor for nearly 60 years, including as the first Mayor of Waitakere City and Mayor of Henderson Borough Council, and Miriam stood loyally by his side supporting him in all of his civic duties.
But Miriam was also a champion and supporter of a long list of community groups and causes in her own right, ranging from the Waitakere Red Cross to the Henderson Women’s Bowling Club to the New Zealand Orchid Society.
But it was her campaigning to help new mothers that was perhaps the most significant and meaningful to Miriam, a mother of four herself.
Prompted by her own traumatic experience, where she didn’t know whether she’d given birth to a son or daughter for three days due to the drugs she was prescribed during her baby’s birth, Miriam became an active campaigner for empowering women in childbirth and promoting maternity hospital rooming-in for new mothers and babies.
So passionate was she about the importance of giving women the opportunity for natural, drug-free childbirth and giving babies the best start in life, she held ante-natal classes in the lounge of her Henderson home and helped form the Natural Child Birth Association which later became known as Parents Centres.
Miriam earned several royal honours – she was awarded the Commemoration Medal in 1990, the NZ Suffrage Centennial Medal in 1993 and the Queen’s Service Order for Community Service in 1999.
Miriam still lives in her beloved West Auckland where she regularly sees several generations of her growing family.
