Ryman villages have been pioneering what it means to live life to the full in retirement for over 35 years. Our approach to dementia care is no different.
Our villages are supportive and caring communities that work to improve the experience of residents living with dementia. We provide a safe environment for residents to enjoy living in, with a focus on experiences, rather than processes.
We have researched and developed our own model of dementia care, myRyman Life. The model aims to challenge perspectives on dementia and support people to live in the moment, and to feel kindness, love, and security. It promotes spontaneity, laughter, and happiness.
The dementia care area in each of our villages has an easy-to-navigate environment, including tranquil outdoor areas that are safe and secure. Cues and signage support memory and help residents with orientation.
In 2020, myRyman Life was named Innovation of the Year – Dementia Care Model Solution at the Asia Paciﬁc Eldercare Innovation Awards in Singapore.
