To provide a caring and safe environment which people will find supportive and homely.


We believe the following to be of critical importance:

Each person is unique in their own right. Each person has physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual and cultural needs to be addressed on an individual and on-going basis.

Homestead Ilam is a community. Residents, family, staff and wider contacts form part of this community and we all share responsibility in maintaining it.

Residents have the right to achieve optimum quality of life regardless of their age, gender, sexuality or any life changing condition they may have.

Promoting independence and allowing the person to function autonomously when making decisions and achieving goals in all aspects of daily living, within the bounds of safety and capacity.
