Downsizing & Decluttering

Location: 222 Colombo St, Beckenham, Christchurch, 8023

Tuesday 26 October, 2pm

Let's face it, the thought of packing up and moving to a new house can be pretty daunting, especially if you've lived in the family home for the last 20 years.

Join us for an afternoon with Senior Move Managers who will guide you through the ways to make the whole process a lot less unnerving. Learn how to prepare your home for sale, and get on with moving on. 

Please RSVP as spaces are limited.

Apartment Open Afternoon

Location: 222 Colombo St, Beckenham, Christchurch, 8023

Thursday 28 October, 2pm

Step inside an assisted-living apartment!

Our assisted-living apartment has been refreshed by talented interior designers, and I would love to show you through. Assisted-living apartments come with support that makes life easier, like housekeeping and a chef-prepared meal every day.

Come along and learn about the living and care options available at the village, including receiving up to resthome-level care in your own apartment.

Pioneering a new way of living

Residents at Ryman villages are not retiring from life, they're finding a new way to live. They're rediscovering passions and pastimes that were lost when responsibilities took over, they're learning new skills, and they're embracing connections with like-minded people. The banter, laughter and camaraderie are what make every day special.


Relish spending time on the passions and pastimes that bring you joy, while we take care of things like lawns, rates and window cleaning.



Take a weight off your mind knowing that if your needs change we have comprehensive care options that can be dialled up when needed.



Enjoy a little certainty with our Peace of Mind Guarantees. Designed to protect you and your family, we've got your back now and in the future.



Stay connected and active with like-minded people. You'll gain a lifestyle and a community you can thrive in.
