SINCE RYMAN HEALTHCARE WAS CREATED IN 1984, more than 30,000 people have lived and laughed in its beautiful, purposebuilt villages.
While Ryman is pioneering a new way of living in retirement, its residents are pioneering what it means to live life to the full. Like the trailblazers they’re named after – Rita Angus, Sir Edmund Hillary, Possum Bourne – Ryman villages are home to residents who have been pioneering all their lives: they fought for freedom on foreign soils, achieved significant social change, built thriving communities, and contributed to the development of the technology age. Continuing to live their lives with passion and purpose, they are embracing the ‘lock and leave’ traveller lifestyle, learning new skills to broaden their minds, and rediscovering passions and pastimes that were lost when responsibilities took over.
With 36 villages spread across the country, Ryman Healthcare is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of its residents, staff and local communities.
“We are delighted to win the Trusted Brand accolade again,” says Chief Executive Gordon MacLeod. “It reflects countless hours of hard work by our team of more than 5700 kind, caring, big-hearted people.”
