Engage activities

Bringing your passions to life

Ryman Engage – our complimentary activities program – is about embracing opportunities and activities that are thoughtfully planned, age and ability appropriate, and make the most of our beautiful facilities.

Residents can join in the many activities on offer. It may be going on a group bus trip, heading off to visit an exhibition, joining one of the many interest groups, or simply sharing some baking at morning tea.

A firm resident favourite are the complimentary Happy Hours. Regular entertainers perform for residents, which they thoroughly enjoy. In fact, we often have relatives who come along to join in the fun.

We bring life into the villages so that people who can’t get out and about as much can still experience a lot of life and a lot of fun.

Villages can host art exhibitions, fashion shows and music and dance performances. Residents enjoy a colourful mix of visitors, such as young parents’ groups who bring children into the villages, and our residents go out into schools and help children with their reading. You’ll even come across farm animals visiting our villages!

Tailored activities include Men’s Club, a chance for blokes to get together; Musical Moments, a music program aimed at stimulating memories and reminiscence; Mind Benders, puzzles and quizzes to encourage mental stimulation; and our Triple A exercise program, aimed at keeping residents as fit and active as possible.

The key is to provide something for everyone, so that we can satisfy whatever it is that sparks your interest.
