Neighbouring the suburbs of St Albans and Keilor sits the suburb of Kealba, the location for Rymans new proposed Kealba Retirement Village. It’s a suburb you may not have heard of and, despite its small size, Kealba packs a big punch in what it has to offer.
If you’re after a little tranquility, Maribyrnong Valley Parklands featuring Brimbank Park and Horseshoe Bend Farm are just a short stroll from the village – perfect for afternoon strolls or picnics with the grandchildren.
Inside the village, you’ll enjoy an easy, fulfilled lifestyle, while outside the village the local area and surrounding suburbs offer a bounty of convenient shopping and amenities – Keilor Central Shopping Centre, Essendon, Highpoint and many more. Plus, Melbourne Airport is merely a 15-minute drive away.
As a Ryman village, the proposed Kealba Village will offer living choices to suit everyone with modern yet timeless villas and assisted-living apartments. Upon completion, the village will also offer a state-of-the-art aged-care centre that includes low care, high care and specialist dementia care. So, you can feel reassured knowing that if your needs change, we can continue looking after you in the same village community close to your partner and friends.
You’ll also enjoy top-notch amenities such as a café, all-weather bowling green, heated indoor swimming pool and spa, hair and beauty salon and cinema – to name just a few. Kealba Village will be a place where you can live life to the full.
Kelaba Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our villas will be light and spacious, with clean lines and a clever open plan design layout that provides an easy flow throughout. For year-round comfort, all villas will be air conditioned and heated.
If down the track you need more support, we will offer assisted-living apartments and a full range of residential aged-care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialed up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference.
Our resident-friendly terms are designed to protect you and your family. Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your villa*, and our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.
*Some conditions apply.
Community is central to the lifestyle so we will offer amenities that encourage that sense of togetherness, such as a café, dining room, bar, hair and beauty salon, and shop.
Retirement is a great time to sharpen your skills on the passions and pastimes that you love. Pursue your interests in the workshop, craft room, billiards room, and library.
Incorporate regular activity into your everyday routine or enjoy the camaraderie of a little game time. The village will feature a swimming pool, spa pool, gym and bowling green.

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.
Assisted-living apartments come with support like housekeeping and a chef-prepared meal – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.
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.
Kealba Village will offer comprehensive 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. Ryman 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.
