Ryman difference

Pioneering a new way to live

The Ryman model is unique and provides benefits you can’t find anywhere else. Here are some of the ways we’re different.

CARE - The future, you're good 

Care is built into the fabric of our villages from the very beginning. It inspires confidence to live the way you want because you know the future is covered if your circumstances change.

Ryman villages offer independent living, assisted living in serviced apartments and resthome care. Most of our villages also provide hospital and specialist dementia care.

COMMUNITY - Togetherness you can feel

Community is central to the lifestyle at Ryman villages. Free from the responsibility of maintaining the family home, residents can make the most of staying active and connected with like-minded people.

That feeling of connection also extends to the unique bonds that develop between residents and our village teams. You can see it in how they interact with each other, the smiles, the banter. And when times are tough, that’s when you really feel the power of a caring community.  

INNOVATION - There's always room for improvement

Pioneering a better way means never standing still when it comes to innovation.

  • Got somewhere to be – our eCabs and eCars will get you there
  • Can’t be there in person – we’ll get you connected via Zoom
  • Feeling peckish – our chef-prepared Delicious menu goes down a treat
  • The latest in care – our myRyman Care app makes the admin easy so hands-on care is our focus

GUARANTEES - Enjoy a little certainty

Having certainty about your living costs inspires confidence, as it means you can relax into retirement and live the way you want.

Ryman’s Peace of Mind Guarantees are designed to protect you and your family, so whatever the future holds, we’ve got your back. From a base weekly fee that is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment or townhouse*, to a deferred management fee that is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector. We’re pioneering the way so you can enjoy a little certainty.

We encourage you to compare Ryman's independent living and serviced apartment living terms with other retirement villages.
