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.

We also offer assisted-living apartment and a range of care options.  Its 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. 

Independent and assisted-living amenities

Northwood Cafe

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, and shop.

Retirement is a great time to sharpen your skills on the passions and pastimes that you love. You will be able to spend time enjoying the workshop, cinema, craft room, pool table, and library.

Northwood pool

Active and thriving

Incorporate regular activity into your everyday routine or enjoy the camaraderie of a little game time. Amenities will include a swimming pool, spa pool, gym and bowling green.

"The people here are absolutely fantastic. They welcome you, and I love that."

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.

Our retirement villages offer a range of care options - not as an add-on, but woven into the fabric of our villages.

Our Northwood Village care centre will offer a full range of care options including rest home, 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.
