Nellie Melba offers a varied range of care options, which include independent living, aged residential care and highly specialised dementia care. Since Ryman Healthcare launched in the late 1980s, the management and staff have always had the attitude that their offerings have to be good enough for their own parents.

For those who opt for fully independent living in our apartments, it’s comforting to know that their care services are readily available in the village in case they ever need them. In addition, the aged-care centre at the retirement village is manned 24/7 by a clinical manager and a dedicate team of unit coordinators who supervise the registered nurses and trained carers who administer the daily care to their residents. Indeed, Nellie Melba prides themselves on having some of the highest staff ratios in the aged-care sector.

Overall, their staff work tirelessly to make sure the levels of happiness and comfort the residents experience is as good as it can be. Moreover, should their needs change, they are given priority access to receive other levels of care directly within in the village.

All of their rooms are spacious and private and come with air-conditioning. They also have monitored call bells and ensuite bathrooms. Residents, along with their families, can pick from a selection of room configurations and customise the design of them to ensure they feel homely and comfortable.

At Ryman, they use an electronic care app, called myRyman, to bring their care plans to fruition. This app is an award-winning piece of technology that empowers and engages both residents and their families to have input within the care plan, enabling them to feel informed and involved. Each of the care rooms are equipped with a device that allows carers and nurses to see and record tasks for the daily care requirements of each resident.

All their rooms overlook beautiful courtyards or quaint landscaped gardens, which provide a tranquil and relaxed space for residents to enjoy. Moreover, visitors are always welcome, and all of the rooms have a TV to provide an outlet for entertainment.

To ensure the comfort and safety of all their residents and employees during power outages, they also have emergency generators onsite, which is important to ensure a seamless continuation of the daily operations. These generators power their aged-care centres, serviced apartments and village centres.
