Who we are

We provide ‘Ageing in Place’ lifestyles for permanent and respite residents and have been trusted by the Werribee Community for over 40 years.

Manor Court Werribee Aged Care provides ‘Ageing in Place’ lifestyles for permanent and respite residents. Trusted by the Werribee Community for over 40 years, Manor Court is fully accredited by the Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission. Our home located a short walk from Werribee Station, numerous bus stops and the local shopping precinct.

Our qualified team of nurses and carers, including a Division 1 Nurse who is on call 24 hours, pride themselves on providing constant, high-quality clinical care guided by the Aged Care Quality Standards. Like a family, Manor Court inspires a comfortable, kinship atmosphere in which residents can enjoy a fulfilling and rewarding life. Our dedicated Lifestyle Team are continuously introducing new programs and activities tailored to our residents individual needs.

With strong community links, our lifestyle team focus on the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of residents and on creating a sense of community and belonging. Manor Court provides high quality care services in partnership with a variety of health services.

Manor Court is a community-owned, not-for-profit entity, meaning any surplus funds are invested in the business for the direct benefit of residents and their families.

Diversity and Inclusion Commitment Statement

Manor Court delivers care and services that are inclusive and do not discriminate. Our delivery of care and services is responsive, inclusive and sensitive to culturally and linguistically diverse residents, including to residents from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds. Inclusion means that each resident can participate equally, despite their diversity.

Our story

Manor Court values the identity, culture and diversity of each resident and aims to embed cultural safety in the design of the organisation. We are committed to delivering culturally safe and inclusive care, and services.

The resident defines what culture, identity, and respect means to them, and this is used in the understanding of their choices and needs and developing their Care Plan.

It is their experience of the care and services that is provided, being part of the decisions made and how able they feel to raise concerns and provide feedback that are all essential elements throughout this process. Key features of cultural safety are:

  • understanding the resident’s culture
  • acknowledging differences
  • being actively aware and respectful of these differences in planning and delivering care and services.

A Message from the Board

In the late 1970s, Werribee and the surrounding area was on the cusp of a population boom that would see it grow to the vibrant city we have today. A community spirit and sense of altruism that existed almost four decades ago remains strong even today and is evidenced through the many and varied charitable and fundraising events organised by the local community.

When the Rotary Club of Werribee recognised the need to provide affordable care for the elderly residents of the area in 1974, it was the start of a project that brought together a group of dedicated individuals.

The founding committee of management, originally known as the Elderly People’s Homes Society, was made up of Rotary Club and community members with the sole purpose of creating a facility where some of our most vulnerable people could find a safe caring environment in which to spend their final years.

To the many residents of Manor Court, those with us now and those who live on in our memory, thank you for choosing us as your aged care provider.
