Your health needs may change over time and if they do, it’s good to know you won’t have to move again. It’s comforting for couples at different stages in their health to know that they can be cared for within the same Ryman village, by the same Ryman team.

At Murray Halberg Retirement Village, we not only provide independent and assisted living, we also provide a full care offering, which includes specialist dementia care.

Our village is a supportive and caring community that works to improve the experience of residents living with dementia. We provide a safe environment for residents to enjoy living in, with a focus on experiences, rather than processes.

Our myRyman Life model of dementia care is an innovative approach to supporting residents living with dementia. The approach focuses on supporting residents to live in the moment, and to feel kindness, love, and security. It promotes spontaneity, laughter, and fun.

Our dementia care area has an easy-to-navigate environment, including a welcoming and tranquil outdoor area for people to relax in. Cues and signage support memory and help residents with orientation.

We’ve won the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand: Aged Care and Retirement Villages award seven times. And we’ve been awarded the gold medal six times in the Reader’s Digest Quality Service award.

Innovations such as our custom-made electronic care app, myRyman, contribute to this high standard. In every care room, a device enables nurses and carers to see and record information about each resident. This award-winning technology creates greater efficiencies, allowing our teams to spend more time with residents as a result.

Private rooms are warm and spacious, and every room includes an ensuite bathroom. Dementia residents are discreetly monitored by a sensor system, which alerts our care team if a resident is out of bed at night. The system switches on lights that help guide the resident to their ensuite, and then back to bed.

We provide all meals and snacks from our seasonal Delicious menu. Meals are prepared fresh on site by our village chefs, with a choice of three main courses, including a vegetarian option. We also cater for special dietary requirements.

Ryman has emergency generators at every village so our residents and our people can be safe and comfortable in a power outage. For dementia residents, maintaining a calm environment is an essential part of our myRyman Life approach to dementia care. Therefore, emergency generators provide real peace of mind.

What really makes a difference in Ryman care centres, is the daily dedication of our care teams. Residents and their families think the world of our nurses and carers. And because our staff ratios are some of the highest in the care sector, the individualised care we provide creates the unique experience that residents tell us they love.

Choosing the right care centre for a loved one with dementia is one of the most important decisions you will make. At Murray Hallberg, our dedication to care begins even before you or your loved one has moved in.

You’ll be supported by our care team every step of the way, to ensure the move into dementia care is a smooth and informed transition.

We look forward to introducing you to our warm and caring community.
