Senior Citizen Partnership Program

SwanCare is partnering with Curtin University Medical School for another exciting year of the Senior Citizen Partnership Program (SCPP)

Launching in 2017, the program introduces our residents to the next generation of Doctors in an insightful, rewarding initiative.

Talking to SwanCare residents about the program was Dr. Ute Hauck, MD, ACC from Curtin University.

SCPP runs throughout the duration of the students' course (5 years), with a minimum of 6 visitations a year. The program encourages residents to provide their two allocated students with an insight into their lives; including the obstacles they face and their experience with the health care system.

It’s also a great opportunity to combat certain stereotypes about what it means to age. Dr Hauck shared a story about a previous student who tagged along to their partner's line dancing class. The student later told Dr. Hauck they were so impressed by how active and spritely our SwanCare community is!

Not only are the lessons learnt from this program valuable, but the relationships are too. We are so excited SCPP is returning for another year and look forward to having some friendly new faces visit us soon!
