At Ilam, an enjoyable, enriched retirement experience awaits you. Our friendly and welcoming community offers the perfect environment for those looking for a little more companionship and support. The facilities and activities in the village are available for everyone to enjoy, and you will be encouraged to join in and participate as much as you'd like, while still enjoying your privacy.

We take time to get to know everyone, and help every individual to continue to enjoy the things they love to do. If you're looking for a community where you can continue to enjoy life to the full, and where people respect and look after each other, we'd love the opportunity to show you around our Village.

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.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
