Established in 1957, Princes Court currently accommodates 100 aged care residents, with another 76 residents living independently.

MILDURA’S largest aged care provider, Princes Court, has been reaccredited for another three years, passing its review with a perfect 42-out-of-42 score.

The facility underwent an extensive National Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission review and met all quality standards with no recommendations for improvements.

It was the second time in a row the provider had had no improvements recommended.

Established in 1957, Princes Court currently accommodates 100 aged care residents, with another 76 residents living independently.

Prince’s Court acting CEO Carrie Chappell said it felt “fantastic” to be reaccredited.

“I’m really, really proud of the team and all the hard work and effort that has gone into achieving that result,” Ms Chappell said.

She attributed the facility’s success to putting its residents first.

“It’s the community and the hard work and dedication that the staff have,” she said.

“Our director of care always says it’s not end-of-life, it is living life to the end, and we try to embody that all the time with our residents to make sure they are the centre of everything we do.”

Princes Court board chair Lyn Heaysman said Princes Court had been supporting the community for many years and would continue to do so into the future.

“We may turn 66 ourselves this year but Princes Court is more committed than ever to meeting the rising aged care needs of Mildura and beyond,” Ms Heaysman said.

“Our friendly, tight-knit team works together as one big family, bonded by the indisputable belief that everyone we support deserves to feel happy, safe, valued and respected.”

In 2020 Princes Court received a prestigious national award for excellence in aged care services from Leading Aged Services Australia.
