Winner: 2018 Trusted Brand Aged Care & Retirement Villages
A brand new Ryman retirement village is being built in the Canterbury town of Rangiora, nestled in peaceful surroundings near the local shops. It’s also just a half an hour drive from central Christchurch.
Charles Upham was born in Christchurch in 1908 and worked as a shepherd and musterer before qualifying as a valuer.
When war broke out he volunteered and joined the 20th Battalion, training at Burnham.
Charles Upham became an internationally recognised hero after winning the Commonwealth’s highest honour for bravery – the Victoria Cross – twice. He is the only combat soldier ever to win two of the awards.
Our independent living options include two bedroom apartments and two and three bedroom townhouses, set amongst landscaped gardens. For those who would like some assistance with day-to-day tasks, our one-bedroom serviced apartments will include a choice of personalised services, including housekeeping and meals. All living options are fitted with 24-hour emergency call buttons for residents peace of mind. The village will also offer the very best in resthome, hospital and dementia care, in a modern purpose-built facility with private rooms and en-suites.
We’re building a host of resort-style facilities, including an all weather bowling green, heated indoor swimming pool and spa, gym, library, movie theatre and much more. You’ll be able to treat yourself to a spot of pampering in our beauty salon, relax in the lounge or café with a book from our well-stocked library, or enjoy time in the community garden. We’re also putting together a full calendar of events and activities, from social outings and quiz nights to exercise sessions.
