Dementia CareJohn Flynn Retirement Village

Many people will experience dementia at some point in their lives, either directly or indirectly. For this reason, Ryman developed myRyman Life – a bespoke model of dementia care.

They believe that supporting people with dementia requires a community effort. That’s why they have created caring and supportive communities that aim to enhance the lives of residents living with dementia.

Their dementia care rooms are spacious, air-conditioned and equipped with a private ensuite and television. You can choose from a range of room layouts, some with views overlooking beautifully landscaped gardens or courtyards. There is plenty of space for family and friends to visit.

To assist their residents, the village has dementia care teams that provide specialist care in a positive and therapeutic manner. They strive to provide a familiar rhythm to their residents’ daily routines, which helps to build trust and reduce stress. Each resident is also assigned a primary caregiver wherever possible in an effort to provide consistency.

Ultimately, their aim is to provide a calming and safe environment for their residents. Their dementia care areas are designed to be easy to navigate, with tranquil outdoor areas that resemble a garden at home while being secure and safe. They also have plenty of cues and signage to support their residents with their memory and assist with their orientation.
