Independent and secure, the living is easy in a Ryman village. You have all the upsides of living independently in your own apartment, villa or serviced apartment, plus a huge bonus - the support of a vibrant community. It's home sweet home, without the hassle! Better still, your base weekly fee includes rates, window cleaning, gardening, and exterior maintenance. Giving you more time and energy to enjoy the things you really love.
Our independent apartments and villas have everything you need, it's all about easy living. From the clean lines and clever design layout, to the tranquil village surroundings that make you feel like you're on holiday with your own furniture. They’re the kind of homes you very quickly fall in love with. Of course, living in a community with like-minded individuals creates the perfect setting where real friendships can grow and thrive. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the extensive events and activities on offer at our villages are well attended by residents.
Serviced apartment living
As for our serviced apartments, they come with support that makes life easier, like housekeeping and a chef-prepared meal every day. It's great for you and reassuring for your family, because they know you're being looked after. The feeling of togetherness is a real point of difference for serviced-apartment residents. Which is enhanced by a variety of outings, regular transport options, and endless opportunities to join in with activities when you feel like it.
We have a range of living options for singles and couples across both metro and regional Victoria, each of which provide a unique lifestyle. Peace of mind, ease, togetherness and true independence all combine to create homes that you'll quickly fall in love with.
"The atmosphere in this village is fantastic, it's something really special."
Aged care is not an 'add on' at a Ryman village, it is built into the fabric of our villages from the very first design concepts. So, if your health needs change over time, we can continue to look after you. Once you live in a Ryman village, you will always have priority access to our comprehensive aged-care options. This is of particular comfort to couples or friends who are at different stages in their health to know they can be cared for within the same village.
It's all about you
The levels of aged care we provide include residential aged care (low care and high care), specialist dementia care, and respite care. Your care is customised according to your needs and preferences. This is made easy via our award-winning myRyman Care app. A device, located in every care room, enables nurses and carers to access clinical data and record daily care tasks for you at the bedside. This means our teams can spend more quality time with you, and less time manually writing up notes. And should your primary carer be absent, everything is securely recorded on your myRyman device, making the transfer of care seamless.
Togetherness you can feel
A huge point of difference for Ryman aged-care residents is the feeling of connection they experience. The support of our care teams combined with the shared interests and understanding of your fellow residents, creates a lifestyle where you can actively thrive. Activities, outings and our Triple A exercise program mean there is always something to keep you entertained, all while receiving the clinical care you need in a warm and homely environment. Of course, we also appreciate the importance of retaining your own personal space. Your private room is spacious and air conditioned, with a neutral colour palette that lets you add your own stylish flourishes or home comforts like your favourite armchair.
And of course, meals are a highlight because the food tastes great. Our seasonal Delicious menu offers flavoursome meals with choice that are made fresh on site by our village chefs.
