Welcome to the Ryman resident experience


A move to a Ryman village marks the beginning of a new chapter, one that’s filled with possibility and opportunity. It’s your time to do what you want, when you want.

Everyone is unique, and each of our residents plays a part in creating the personality of the village they live in. Therefore, the Ryman resident experience is designed to fit around our residents’ preferences, not the other way round.

Customised to align and adapt with the culture of each village and the residents who live there, the Ryman resident experience has three guiding principles: Freedom, Connection, and Wellness.


A lifestyle with less responsibility, and more fun

Spend less time on chores and more time on the things you love, or that you’ve always wanted to try.


Participate in village life, your way

Whether you’re a social butterfly or selective about your social interactions, you can create a social routine that suits your personality and preferences.


Feel supported, physically and mentally

Retirement is a time to focus on you! We'll support you with plenty of exciting ideas and opportunities that will enhance your physical and mental wellbeing.

Elevating your independent lifestyle

Your ideas, your village choices

The best person to decide on what you most enjoy doing is you. So, with that in mind, we’ve partnered with our residents to co-design and enhance the activities and events that are the most appealing to you.

Think about those passions and pastimes you’ve always wanted to try but never quite got around to organising. Now is your chance to give them a go!

The Ryman resident experience is all about putting you in the driver’s seat, so you have a say in the activities and event options offered at your village.


All supported by the Ryman resident app

You also have the option to download the Ryman resident app. It will help you manage your calendar of village activities and events while also keeping you up to date with important notices. You have control of your schedule in the palm of your hand!

The app is easy to install and use, and we provide technical support to get you started.


Our residents' experiences

Hear about some of the great experiences our residents enjoyed while we were co-designing the Ryman experience and the Ryman resident app.

"I've done things that I've never tried before, which is exciting."

"Everything that Ryman provides is very important, and you don't have to travel anywhere to do it. It's all here on our doorstep."

"Life here is really good. I am much busier and it is great having people around all the time, getting to meet new folks and making new friends."

"Triple A is great the way it's conducted, and the fact that it's doing so much good. I enjoy the unique creative ways to keep fit."
