The commitment of Ryman staff to residents is the best in the sector. As Ryman co-founder Kevin Hickman put it, care has to be “good enough for mum”.

It’s not just the care that is exemplary. The brand’s architect-designed resort-style villages cater for needs from independent living to hospital and dementia care.

“That means residents who move in can be assured that we will look after them no matter how much their health changes over time,” says Simon Challies, Ryman Healthcare Managing Director.

Results are used to drive improvements and are published so everyone knows how the villages are doing.
