The original site was part of the land that was set aside for the old Mildura Base Hospital in 1891 on 2.5 acres of land offered by Mr George Chaffey. The hospital was built on the site fronting Thirteenth street and officially opened in March 1892.
Princes Court Homes Hostel on land at the back of the hospital was founded in 1957, and the organisation is the oldest provider of residential aged care in Mildura and the surrounding region.
In its early years, the organisation offered secure accommodation and on-site support for 19 elderly citizens who were unable to live in their own homes. Several residential (Brodie, Rogers Units (1957) a dining room and amenities (Priscilla Tunkin Dining) were erected on land provided by the old Mildura Base Hospital. An appointed board of management ran the homes as an affiliate of the old hospital for the first 35 years.
In 1985 through to 1988 the chapel, private dining room and a recreation centre were added.
In 1990, at the suggestion of a resident, the organisation changed its name from Mildura Homes for the Aged to Princes Court Homes.
Further residential buildings AK Harvey, Boronia and Waratah were added in early 1990s.
Princes Court Homes became an independent incorporated, not for profit, community owned organisation in 1992.
In 1993, Princes Court became the first facility in the region to offer specialised dementia care.
Through the early 1990’s, five units to accommodate eight residents each were constructed in the northern part of the Mildura aged care facility (Nan Harvey, RSL, WJ Caffrey, Johansen and Mansell Units).
With Caffey Family Unit being built in 1996/7 for 14 rooms for the more advanced residents, the organisation adopted the philosophy of ageing in place in 1999, where a combination of high and low-care streams provides a continuum of care for residents.
Rogers unit (6 residents), one of the first units on the site in 1957 was demolished and rebuilt in 2004. This concluded the northern six units on the northern section of the site.
In 2006, Princes Court began building a retirement village in Mildura for older members of the community who are able to live independently. Princes Court Village, which was completed in 2012, consists of 55 two and three-bedroom units.
The organisation also continued to develop it facilities and care options at Princes Court Homes. Today, it is home to 98 permanent and two respite residents who are supported by more than 150 staff.
