Description
WELCOME TO ILAM LIFECARE

Our aim is to provide the best possible living experience for people in their later years. We have taken the utmost care to create an environment that fulfills the needs of individuals, whether they are seeking an independent lifestyle, or requiring more support.

Designed by respected architect Paul Foley, Ilam Lifecare offers premium apartments and studios in a warm and welcoming environment. All units are private and self-contained, yet fully serviced by our trained staff to provide peace of mind and the ultimate in comfort and security. There is also a village arcade and a variety of lounges, dining areas and outdoor gardens where residents can socialise and enjoy fresh air and change of scenery.


CRESSY UNIT

At Ilam Retirement and Care we understand that caring for someone who is developing dementia and experiencing confusion and memory loss can be difficult and demanding.

Our specially designed Cressy Unit help residents find their orientation through the use of visual cues. Easily accessible garden and lawn areas provide a safe and secure outdoor environment. Dining, livings and outdoor areas are connected so that residents can move about freely.

Staff working in the Cressy Unit, including registered nurses are chosen for their tolerance, understanding and ability to manage difficult behaviour. Completion of the ACE Dementia Training Programme is a requirement of all staff working in the unit.
