Beautiful surroundings with views to the hills

Located on Fairway Drive in Te Kamo, there’s a lifestyle option to suit everyone at the village. You can choose from a townhouse, an independent apartment or the extra support of an  assisted-living apartment. If your needs change over time, our state-of-the-art care centre provides 112 care rooms offering rest home, hospital and specialist dementia care. Jane Mander care centre is located within the same village community and, as a Ryman resident, you will have priority access over non-residents at the time of your transfer. Should a space for the type of care the village offers be unavailable at the time of your transfer, we will do our best to accommodate you at another Ryman village that provides the level of care you need* until a space becomes available at Jane Mander Village.

The amenities include an all-weather bowling green, indoor heated swimming pool and spa, gym, internal atrium, beauty and hairdressing salon, library, dining room, internet café, bar, lounges, shop and movie theatre.

There is always something to do; from organised events and shopping trips, to activities that inspire movement. The measure of a full life at Jane Mander Village is certainly one that will get richer with age.

*Care options vary between villages, please check with our team for details of the care offered at each village.

Each Ryman village is named in honour of a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer: Anthony Wilding, Lady Diana Isaac, Evelyn Page. They pushed further and set the bar high for others to aspire to. In creating communities that challenge the expectations of ageing, Ryman villages are also setting the bar high. They’re demonstrating that a retirement lifestyle brimming with new experiences, connections and fulfilment is something we should aspire to. Our Kiwi and Aussie namesakes represent the measure of inspiration, while Ryman villages represent the measure of retirement living.

Jane Mander – Early New Zealand Novelist and Journalist 1877 – 1949

Jane Mander was born in the small community of Ramarama south of Auckland. Her father, the Hon. Francis Mander, was Member of Parliament for Marsden and later purchased the Northern Advocate newspaper where Jane was to hone her skills as a journalist.

In 1907 Jane became Editor of the Dargaville North Auckland Times, before traveling to Sydney to work as a freelance journalist, submitting articles for the Maoriland Worker.

In 1912 Jane traveled further afield, to New York to study at the Columbia University where she excelled in her studies. However poor health forced her to abandon her studies after just three years. She joined the suffrage movement, campaigning for a state referendum, and worked for the Red Cross.

During this time she also worked on her most well known and highly praised novel The Story of a New Zealand River (1920). Despite being popular in the US and UK, it received a hostile reception back in New Zealand. This book is believed to be a significant influence on the acclaimed NZ film The Piano directed by Jane Campion.

In 1923 Jane moved to London, writing numerous essays, short stories and further novels, and acting as a London correspondent for many NZ newspapers.

Her health failing, Jane returned to NZ in 1932. She attempted to write her seventh novel but managed only a few articles before her death in Whangarei in 1949, aged 72.
