Ryman Pioneers Freedom

John Flynn Village offers living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our apartments are light and spacious with well-considered layouts, and have balcony or patio options. For year-round comfort, all apartments are air conditioned and heated.

If down the track you need more support, we offer assisted living in a serviced apartment and a full range of residential aged care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialled up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference


Our pioneering approach to retirement living includes resident-friendly terms designed to protect you and your family. Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment*, and our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

These are just some of the ways we’re pioneering a new way of living for a new retirement generation.

*Some conditions apply. 


Enjoy all the upsides of living independently in a Ryman village. Easy living, security, plus a huge bonus – the support of a vibrant village community.


Serviced apartments come with support you can count on. A chef-prepared meal, housekeeping – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.


It's hard to put your finger on why Ryman villages just feel different. For the inside knowledge, check out our guide.

Pioneers Care


Aged care is not an ‘add on’ at a Ryman village, it is built into the fabric of our villages from the very beginning. It’s comforting for couples and friends to know they can still be near each other even if their health needs are different.

John Flynn Village will offer a full range of aged care options including residential aged care (low care and high care) and specialist dementia care. Like all aspects of our villages, we constantly look for ways to improve both the aged care we provide and the innovation behind it. Aged care is customised using our myRyman care app and residents love the food in our seasonal Delicious menu, which is prepared fresh on site by village chefs. 


Personal attention, warmth and building trusting relationships are all crucial to the customised care we provide at our care centres.


Nurturing and caring dementia care communities. Residents are supported to live in the moment, and to feel kindness, love, and security.


It's hard to put your finger on why Ryman care centres just feel different. For the inside knowledge, check out our care guide.
