RETIREMENT LIVING

Retirement living in the heart of the community

Our proposed retirement village will be located at 26 - 40 Donald Street and was formally the Karori Teachers College. Close to Karori shops, doctors and churches and only 15 minutes from the Wellington CBD, this village will enjoy the best of retirement living in the heart of an established community.

Features will include architecturally designed apartments, serviced apartments, and a care centre, all set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens.

There is always something to do in a Ryman village, with activities and events to suit everyone; from organised events and shopping trips, to activities that inspire movement. It will certainly be a place where you can live life to the full.

Ryman Pioneers Freedom
 FREEDOM TO LIVE THE WAY YOU WANT
 

Karori Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our 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*, 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.

Karori 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.
