RETIREMENT LIVING

New village in popular Northwood

Ryman's proposed retirement village on Main North Road in Northwood, Christchurch will be located just across the road from the Northwood Supa Centre. The Supa Centre offers an array of amenities including a supermarket, pharmacy, café and restaurant, all within easy walking distance. The village will also be situated across from the Northwood residential development.

Main North Road is an arterial route that leads into Christchurch city centre, passing Northlands Shopping Centre and the popular suburb of Merivale along the way.

The proposed village will provide retirement living and care options to retirees in the fast-growing northern suburbs. The new Northwood village will provide apartments and townhouses, serviced apartments, as well as resthome, hospital, and specialist dementia care – all within the same village. As a resident’s health needs change, they can remain living in the area and the village that they know and love.

Residents will enjoy amenities such as an all-weather bowling green, heated indoor swimming pool, café, hair and beauty salon and movie theatre. The village will also be set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens.

Ryman Pioneers Freedom
 FREEDOM TO LIVE THE WAY YOU WANT
 

Our proposed 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 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

ENJOY A LITTLE CERTAINTY

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. 

INDEPENDENT LIVING

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.

SERVICED APARTMENTS

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

EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE

It's hard to put your finger on why Ryman villages just feel different. For the inside knowledge, check out our guide.

Pioneers Care

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 proposed 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. 

RESTHOME AND HOSPITAL CARE

Personal attention, warmth and building trusting relationships are all crucial to the customised care we provide at our care centres.

SPECIALIST DEMENTIA CARE

Nurturing and caring dementia care communities. Residents are supported to live in the moment, and to feel kindness, love, and security.

THE CARE DIFFERENCE

It's hard to put your finger on why Ryman care centres just feel different. For the inside knowledge, check out our care guide.
