Ryman Pioneers Freedom
 FREEDOM TO LIVE THE WAY YOU WANT
 

Rowena Jackson Village offers living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our townhouses are 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 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.

Rowena Jackson care centre offers 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. 

Rowena Jackson is one of over 80 percent of Ryman villages that have been awarded 4-year certification by the Ministry of Health. It’s recognised as the ‘gold star’ standard in care.
