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.

Ryman’s deferred management fees is capped, with our standard fee of 20% one of the lowest in the industry*.

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 do 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.

Our apartments 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.

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. Frances Hodgkins is one such village that has achieved this ‘gold standard’ in care.

The lifestyle at Frances Hodgkins Village has so many wonderful aspects. However, we appreciate that everyone has different needs and expectations. Which is why we encourage you to come and visit.

Compare Ryman’s terms with other retirement village providers, find out what care options they provide for the future, and join in with the activities or events on offer. That way, you’ll obtain a real appreciation of village lifestyle, and whether you can see yourself living there.

We look forward to introducing you to our wonderful community.
