Specialist dementia care

An innovative approach to dementia care

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 myRyman Life model of dementia care is an innovative approach to supporting residents living with dementia. The approach focuses on enabling residents to live in the moment, and to feel kindness, love, and security. It promotes spontaneity, laughter, and fun.

A secure and tranquil environment

Each of our dementia care areas 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.


Delicious meals

Our residents look forward to meal times because the food tastes great – and it’s nutritious. Our seasonal Delicious menu offers three choices at main meals, including a vegetarian dish.

Delicious provides good old-fashioned, home-cooked meals, as well as some exotic dishes, all made by our in-house village chefs.

We will provide all meals and snacks. We can cater for special dietary requirements as well. Talk to us about what is needed.

You are welcome to visit for a meal any time. Vouchers are available to purchase from reception or the café.
