Description
Winner: 2019 Trusted Brand Aged Care & Retirement Villages

Your health needs may change over time and if they do, it’s good to know you won’t have to move again. At Anthony Wilding Retirement Village, we’re dedicated to caring for you now and into your future.

As well as independent living and assisted living in serviced apartments, we also provide resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care. Providing the full range of living and care options is just one of Ryman’s points of difference.

Since 2014, we’ve 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 in New Zealand (with 15 villages or more), Ryman has the highest number of care centres with 4 years’ certification – the ‘gold standard’ in care – from the Ministry of Health.

Anthony Wilding is one such village that has achieved this ‘gold standard’ in care. To achieve this, it has been determined that the care centre, which includes our hospital, has exceeded the sector standard for aged care.

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.

A clinical manager and unit coordinators oversee our trained carers and registered nurses in the delivery of your daily care.
In hospital care, a registered nurse is always on duty, and our on-call doctor is always available. Wherever possible, the same team members will care for you each day.

Private rooms are warm and spacious, and every room includes an ensuite bathroom. There are monitored call bells in your room and ensuite. To ensure a prompt response, all of our nursing and care staff carry a pager that alerts them if a resident rings their bell.

We provide all your meals and snacks form 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.

Amenities include a hair and beauty salon, café and shop. To ensure your safety at all times, we have 24-hour security on site. Our village also has emergency generators in our care centre, serviced apartments and village centre.

What really makes a difference in Ryman care centres, is the daily dedication of our caring 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 is one of the most important decisions you will make. At Anthony Wilding, our dedication to care begins even before you or your loved one has moved in.

The Lifestyle at Anthony Wilding 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 our care centre with other providers, and join in with the activities or events on offer. That way, you’ll obtain a real appreciation of the care centre lifestyle, and whether you can see yourself living there.

You’ll be supported by our care team every step of the way, to ensure your move into hospital care is a smooth and informed transition.
We look forward to introducing you to our warm and caring community.
