Respite care provides temporary care in a range of circumstances. You may need some rehabilitation after a hospital stay, or perhaps a little extra help – whether it’s for a single night or a few weeks.
If you still live in your own home, a short stay at one of our care centres could be a welcome break from your usual routine.
Respite care is often fully funded*, therefore it's worth taking advantage of the welcome break that a stay in one of our villages can provide.
And if you’re thinking about making a permanent move to a Ryman village, why not spend some time with us in respite care? This way you can experience the lifestyle at a Ryman aged-care centre before you make your decision.
*A needs assessment will be required to determine eligibility for government funding.
At Ryman, your care is customised according to your needs and preferences. This is made easy via our award-winning myRyman Care app. A device, located in every care room, enables nurses and carers to access clinical data and record daily care tasks for you at the bedside. This means our teams can spend more quality time with you, and less time manually writing up notes. And should your primary carer be absent, everything is securely recorded on your myRyman device, making the transfer of care seamless.
“The myRyman app has been invaluable for Ryman, in how much it has improved residents’ lives.”
