We provide independent living and assisted-living apartments, as well as resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care.
Providing the full range of living and care options is just one of Ryman’s points of difference.
When Ryman Healthcare was founded over 35 years ago, our co-founder Kevin Hickman thought about what he’d want for his own mother. He set one simple standard for the care we provide:
It’s got to be good enough for Mum.
Today, we not only uphold that same standard, we continue to raise the bar in retirement living and aged care.
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.
Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment, guaranteed.* And our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.
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 doing 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.
Situated at the end of North Street and Graham Street, the village is conveniently close to the heart of Petone.
Apartments and 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.
Amenities include a an all-weather bowling green, café, heated indoor swimming pool and spa, gym, beauty and hairdressing salon, movie theatre and library.
As a Ryman village, Bob Scott is part of a brand that, since 2014, has 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 (with 15 villages or more) in New Zealand, Ryman has the highest number of care centres with 4 years’ certification – the ‘gold standard’ in care – from the Ministry of Health.

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.
