Pioneering a new way of living

Residents at Ryman villages are not retiring from life, they're finding a new way to live. They're rediscovering passions and pastimes that were lost when responsibilities took over, they're learning new skills, and they're embracing connections with like-minded people. The banter, laughter and camaraderie are what make every day special.


Relish spending time on the passions and pastimes that bring you joy, while we take care of things like lawns, rates and window cleaning.



Take a weight off your mind knowing that if your needs change we have comprehensive care options that can be dialled up when needed.



Enjoy a little certainty with our Peace of Mind Guarantees. Designed to protect you and your family, we've got your back now and in the future.



Stay connected and active with like-minded people. You'll gain a lifestyle and a community you can thrive in.
