We're passionate about creating communities where residents thrive - where there’s joy and lifelong friendships. And we’re not slowing down…you have voted us New Zealand’s Most Trusted Brand again this year – for the tenth time!

At Rowena Jackson Village, we’re dedicated to caring for you now and into your future. Your health needs may change over time and if they do, Rowena Jackson Village provides a range of care options to assist you.

We provide independent living and assisted-living apartments, as well as rest home, hospital and specialist dementia care. Providing a range of living and care options is just one of Ryman’s points of difference.

Located in the heart of Waikiwi, the village is nestled amongst beautifully landscaped gardens. Amenities include a café, all-weather bowling green, indoor heated swimming pool, spa, library, gymnasium, hair salon, bar, shop and movie theatre.

At Ryman, we believe the measure of a full life is one that gets richer with age. With communities that challenge what we think about ageing and bring joy and meaning to every moment.

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.

The deferred management fee gives you the right to occupy your unit and enjoy village amenities. Ryman’s standard deferred management fee is capped at 20% of your occupancy advance across our apartments and townhouses*.

Leading innovation is something that Ryman are becoming renowned for. Our seasonal Delicious menu is made fresh on site by in-house village chefs. If you ever feel like letting someone else do the cooking, you can choose from three main courses, including a vegetarian option. We also cater for special dietary requirements.

Just like our Delicious meals, our individually frozen meals are made fresh, using only natural ingredients. The ready-to-eat meals are very reasonably priced and are available to purchase from the village café or reception.

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.

Our townhouses are designed with the over 70s in mind. Their spacious, well-considered layouts include kitchens and bathrooms that make daily life easy for you. For your peace of mind, call bells are monitored 24 hours a day by on-site staff, and we have 24-hour security to ensure your safety at all times.

The lifestyle at Rowena Jackson Village has so many wonderful aspects. However, we appreciate that everyone has different needs and expectations. Which is why we encourage you to come and visit.

Compare Ryman’s 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.
