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

Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village is named after New Zealand's most acclaimed opera singer. Located off Potae Avenue in Riverdale, Gisborne the village is conveniently located close to the Lytton West shops including medical centre, and superettte, close to Gisborne hospital, and with a beautiful rural outlook with coastal and mountain views.

Resthome residents receive the very best in clinical care, alongside the benefits of living in our friendly community. The care we provide is specific to your needs. We can assist you with anything from showering and assistance with dressing, to administering medicines – it simply depends on whatever your needs are at that time.

With this extra help, daily life carries on as normal. The activities and outings are all there for you to take advantage of, and we encourage you to make the most of what the care centre has to offer.

Private rooms are spacious and there are a selection of room layouts, so you can choose which one is right for you. 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. They are comprised of registered nurses; backed by a team of care assistants and care is overseen by the clinical manager, unit coordinators and registered nurses. You will benefit from staff ratios that are amongst the highest in the retirement sector.

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 care assistants all the personalised care information they need, at the bedside, to provide the best care for every resident.

To further customise your individual care, we offer resthome care in the comfort of a serviced apartment. This allows you to remain in your own apartment, but with the extra support that you need.
