Remember when neighbours had time to stop for a chat, and waved a friendly hello in passing? At Ryman villages, we create the kind of community environment that residents grew up in.
It’s the perfect setting for friendships to flourish and for community spirit to thrive.
Aberfeldie Retirement Village is located only 10kms from the CBD.
Aberfeldie is a vibrant inner city suburb with a short drive from the Maribyrnong river and an abundance of shops and facilities in neighbouring areas of Moonee Ponds and Essendon.
Residents can enjoy the convenience of a variety of transport options close by.
Aberfeldie Retirement Village will be part of the Ryman Healthcare group, which offers some of the most resident-friendly terms in Australasia.
There’s so much that happens in a Ryman village, making them vibrant places to live. Our residents maintain close connections with the wider community, and are often involved in a range of activities from art exhibitions to bowling tournaments, and everything in between.
Our Aberfeldie village has a café, the perfect spot for residents to entertain family and friends who have popped in for a visit. Residents love the village environment and they feel connected to their neighbours and friends – whether they love the social life or enjoy a little quiet time.
The tranquil setting for all of this is among beautifully landscaped gardens and leafy shrubs around all of our villages.
At Ryman villages, there’s a lifestyle option to suit everyone, including independent living in apartments, and serviced apartments for those who need a little more help. As your needs change over time, Ryman care options provide residential aged care (also known as low care and high care) and specialist dementia care – all within the same village community.
We welcome residents from the wider community. However, once you live in a Ryman village, you have priority access to aged care options that best suit your needs.
Ryman provide resident-friendly terms such as our fixed base weekly fee.* There are no hidden costs or refurbishment fees. Our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

We’re always looking at ways to improve the resident experience. The attention to detail in the design and layout of our villas and apartments make a real difference to residents’ everyday lives.
We have refined our kitchen designs to include flat bench tops with waterfall edges, creating a breakfast bar that becomes the social hub of the kitchen.
“The atmosphere in this village is fantastic. It’s something very special.”

Our apartments are light and spacious with well-considered layouts, and have a balcony or patio options. For year-round comfort, all apartments are air conditioned and heated.
You will have more time and energy to do the things you love because we look after all the maintenance work. Exterior maintenance, lawn mowing and window cleaning are all part of the service.
One in five Ryman residents lives in a serviced apartment – and it’s easy to see why. You have the independence of living in your own home with help as you need it.
Many residents say that living in a serviced apartment takes the stress out of daily life.
You can choose a home-cooked main meal every day from our Delicious menu, as well as morning and afternoon tea, in the dining room. Other services are available, too. You might like to have your breakfast delivered to your apartment – it’s your choice. We also oﬀer regular outings in the village van.
