At James Wattie Retirement village, we we’re dedicated to caring for you and into your future. It’s comforting for couples at different stages in their health to know that they will be cared for within the same Ryman village, by the same Ryman team.
The village will provide independent living and assisted living in serviced 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 townhouse or 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.

Apartments and townhouses are designed with the over 70s in mind. Their spacious, well-considered layouts include contemporary 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.
