Residential Care Living
Princes Court Homes provides care to suit your needs
Located in the heart of town, our Mildura retirement village is close to health services, retail shops and eateries. Here you have the facilities, freedom and assistance to do as much or as little as you like.
Our Mildura aged care residences offer long and short-term care for people with low to high or complex needs. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and courtyards, the secure site accommodates 100 aged care residents.
Residents are supported by a dedicated team of qualified and well-trained staff and have access to allied health professionals. Our Mildura retirement village staff and volunteers organise a wide range of activities and social events, visiting entertainment and community outings.
Each resident also enjoys the privacy of their own spacious room which includes their own ensuite. All the buildings at Princes Court Homes are of a high living standard and improvements are continuous with a refurbishment program in place.
Our Residents enjoy home-cooked style meals that are prepared in our own kitchen, with meals catering for those with special dietary requirements. The wonderful interactive atmosphere of our large dining room allows residents a social dining experience.
This residential aged care facility is well located being close to retail, medical, parks and transport services providing easy access to most areas of interest within Mildura and therefore is the location of choice for many.
The facilities are vast and varied within the village, there is definitely something here for everyone.
Utilising the Allied Health Services building of the old Mildura Base Hospital, the Village community centre has been redesigned to be a state of the art hub for community life at the village.
The community centre is available for resident’s leisure and activities including a library with an extensive book collection, billiard room, lounge and bar area for social gatherings, the “Ozone” cinema with big screen and state of the art recliners, fitness centre, hair salon, auditorium and meeting room. Along with many social activities organised by the Resident’s Social Committee, visitors and new residents are always welcome. The Supervisor also produces an extensive monthly newsletter full of village information and a calendar of all the regular activities available and when.
