It would be impossible to explain what sets us apart by describing just one thing.
There are many facets that make the Ryman model work – our 30 years’ experience, our philosophies and innovation, but most of all our drive to provide retirement living and aged care facilities that are “good enough for mum”. It is through this that we are able to offer some of the most resident-friendly terms in Australasia.
Our Ryman Peace of Mind Guarantees include fixed weekly fees and a deferred management fee that is one of the lowest in the retirement sector. It is the transparency in which our terms and conditions are set out that makes the real difference - protecting residents and their families to ensure that retirement is a chapter in their lives to be savoured and enjoyed.
We find that for residents who feel happy and secure, there is a roll-on effect to the circle of family and friends surrounding them.
There is great reassurance in knowing that their loved one is happy and secure for the long term. If their health and abilities change, the village they already live in provides them with priority access to everything they need.
We offer independent and assisted living, through to the very best of low care, high care and specialist dementia care. There is no substitute for this peace of mind, and it is the reason why our Ryman villages are built to provide this full continuum of care.
Ryman’s resort-style facilities are a distinguishable feature that certainly sets us apart.
From the indoor swimming pools, movie theatres, bowling greens and hair and beauty salons, our residents are spoiled for choice with the facilities that we offer - often comparing village lifestyle to living on a cruise ship!
At the core, our thoughts continually come back to what we would like to provide for our own parents.
Therefore, we delight our residents with their surroundings and captivate them with what the villages have to offer. After all, this is only what they deserve. Care is at the heart of everything we do. From the nurses and caregivers who directly interact with the residents, and the chefs who meticulously create our Delicious meals, to the builders and designers who create villages with impeccable standards that are second to none. If we put our residents first, everything else falls into place, and we inevitably create a happy environment and happy residents. Ultimately, that’s what makes the Ryman difference.
This is what makes life in a Ryman village good enough for mum.
