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.
Our aim is to support not only residents living with dementia but also the people who support them, including family members who are committed to being an intricate part of a loved one's journey.
In 2020, myRyman Life was named Innovation of the Year – Dementia Care Model Solution at the Asia Paciﬁc Eldercare Innovation Awards in Singapore.
We have researched and developed our own model of dementia care, myRyman Life. The model aims to challenge perspectives on dementia and to support people to live in the moment: to feel kindness, love, and security. It promotes spontaneity, laughter, and happiness. To achieve this we need to understand how dementia affects the brain; the progression of dementia and the challenges that arise throughout the journey.
