Description
At Bob Scott Retirement Village, we’re dedicated to caring for you now and into your future. One in five Ryman Healthcare 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.

As well as independent living and assisted living in serviced apartments, Bob Scott also provide resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care. This is just one of our points of difference.

When Ryman Healthcare was founded over 35 years ago, our co-founder Kevin Hickman thought about what he’d want for his own mother. He set one simple standard for the care we provide:
It’s got to be good enough for Mum.

Today, we not only uphold that same standard, we continue to raise the bar in retirement living and aged care.

Serviced apartments are in the heart of the village, with easy access to everything Bob Scott has to offer.

Leading innovation is something that Ryman villages are becoming renowned for. Our seasonal Delicious menu is made fresh on site by in-house chefs. As a serviced apartment resident, you will enjoy a home-cooked main meal every day. You can choose from three main courses, including a vegetarian option. We also cater for special dietary requirements.

Ryman offer some of the most resident-friendly and transparent terms in Australasia, with agreements written in plain language so they are easy for everyone to understand.

Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your serviced apartment, guaranteed.* And our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

We’ve developed our own ACC accredited Triple A exercise programme. Catering for all ability levels, this free programme improves strength, balance and mobility. Our Engage activities programme provides events and activities for residents, such as the weekly Happy Hour, arts and crafts, and outings in the village van.

Having daily activities and events to look forward to, combined with a friendly village environment, is what life is all about. It’s those moments of shared joy and laughter. Because At Ryman villages, we create the kind of community that our residents grew up in – connected and caring.

Situated at the end of North Street and Graham Street, the village is conveniently close to the heart of Petone.

Serviced apartments have a kitchenette with a fridge-freezer and microwave, a separate bedroom, and a private ensuite. The call bells mean help is always there, as they are monitored 24 hours a day by on-site staff.

Amenities include a an all-weather bowling green, café, heated indoor swimming pool and spa, gym, beauty and hairdressing salon, movie theatre and library.

As a Ryman village, Bob Scott is part of a brand that, since 2014, has repeatedly won the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand: Aged Care and Retirement Villages award. And we’ve been awarded the gold medal four times in the Reader’s Digest Quality Service award.

Of all the large providers (with 15 villages or more) in New Zealand, Ryman has the highest number of care centres with 4 years’ certification – the ‘gold standard’ in care – from the Ministry of Health.

The Lifestyle at Bob Scott Retirement Village has so many wonderful aspects. We appreciate that everyone has different needs and expectations, so we encourage you to come and visit.

Compare Ryman terms with other retirement village providers, find out what care options they provide for the future, and join in with the activities or events on offer. That way, you’ll obtain a real appreciation of village lifestyle, and whether you can see yourself living there.

We look forward to introducing you to our wonderful community.

The Ministry of Health conducts regular audits of Residential Care Facilities. They can be found HERE.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.

 

In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet. The DHB Shared Services website provides additional information about this service.
