Description
Ryman Healthcare have been providing retirement living and care options within one village community for over 30 years. Putting residents first has always been our priority, and our terms, care and innovation are a direct reflection of this. Because at Ryman, it's all about people.

Winner: 2019 Trusted Brand Aged Care & Retirement Villages.

Located in Whalers Gate close to the Base Hospital and Countdown, the village is situated on an elevated and sunny site which encompasses views of the sea and Mt Taranaki.

Our hospital forms part of our care centre, with rooms similar to our resthomes. Hospital-level care provides for those who have significant medical needs, with most people requiring full assistance to move around.

We will assist you with all your needs, from showering and dressing to monitoring any chronic health conditions. We will also provide assistance with medications, wound care, continence management and any other health needs as required.

Private rooms are spacious and there are a selection of room layouts. You will also enjoy a private ensuite and television. What’s important is that it is your own personal space, with the scope to personalise it with your own furnishings and belongings.

It all combines to create a haven for you to relax in, with views that overlook beautifully landscaped gardens, courtyards or atriums. There is plenty of space to welcome visitors and some rooms feature an alcove that can accommodate a display cabinet, storage or a small fridge.

Our care centres are staffed 24-hours a day. Care is provided by trained caregivers and registered nurses, and is overseen by unit coordinators and a clinical manager. A registered nurse is always on duty in the hospital, and whilst it is not an acute hospital, our on-call doctor service is also always available.

Each resident is unique, so by listening to your needs, we can customise your care. Our own custom-built electronic care programme – myRyman – gives nurses and caregivers all the personalised care information they need, at the bedside, to provide the best care for every resident.

Our staff work tirelessly to ensure you comfort and happiness and should your needs change, you have priority access to other levels of care – right there in the village.
