Princes Court Homes was founded in 1957 as “Mildura Homes for the Aged”.

The early years provided 19 elderly citizens of Mildura secure accommodation, with onsite support for those unable to live in their own homes. The land, which we still occupy today, was purchased from the old Mildura Base Hospital and several residential and administration buildings were erected. An appointed board of management ran the homes as an affiliate of the old Base Hospital until 1992.

A name change was adopted in 1990, following a suggestion put forward from a resident and subsequently with the privatisation of the Base Hospital in 1992 Princes Court Homes became an independent, not for profit, community owned organisation.

In 1993 Princes Court Homes became the first facility in the region to offer specific dementia care for residents and in 1999 adopted the “Ageing in Place” philosophy of care where a combination of high and low care streams provided a continuum of care for residents.

Princes Court Homes has continued to develop its facility and care provision for residents and today we are home to 98 permanent and two respite residents who reside here and who are supported by more than 100 staff.
