Independent and assisted living


Our Northwood Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our townhouses and apartments 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 apartments and a full range of care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialed 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 standard deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

*Some conditions apply.

Jennett McGaw - Independent resident 


Enjoy all the upsides of living independently in a Ryman village. Easy living, security, plus a huge bonus – the support of a vibrant village community.


Assisted-living apartments come with support you can count on. A chef-prepared meal, housekeeping – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.

Aged care when you need it

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.

Our Northwood Village 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.
