    New Menu Arrives

    Stir-fried chicken fajitas followed by passionfruit pana-cotta, anyone? 

    SwanCare's new seasonal menu has arrived and includes old favourites, such as roasts and casseroles, as well as new dishes such as smoked salmon & basil quiche and spanakopita (Greek style veggie pie). 

    All meals are cooked fresh onsite at Bentley Park by a dedicated catering team led by Maggie Beer-trained Head Chef, Sathish Kumar.  

    “My goal is to give residents as much flavour as possible. I don’t want to serve them a similar product every day - it’s my passion to provide them with different experiences,” Sathish said.

    This menu is not only offered to those in residential care but is also available for delivery to those in the retirement village, at a very competitive price.  

    For enquiries or to place an order please contact our friendly food service attendant on 0426 225 061 or 6250 0126, between 6.00am – 2.00pm Monday to Friday.

     

  • A 'second home' for book lovers
    Thu 26 Jul 2018

    Three days a week, for the past 30 years, librarian Penny Felder has been helping the residents of SwanCare Bentley Park find just the right book they have been looking for.

    "We have a consistent bunch of regulars and I love that the library has become something of a social hub," says Felder.

    For many of the residents who are avid readers they library is "their second home," she says.

  • Measure in love
    Tue 24 Jul 2018

    Fifty-eight times a day. That's how often staff from a Perth based aged care provider feel they improve a resident's life. 

    The SwanCare team calculated the average figure after hosting collaborative workshops, facilitated by an external agency, to figure out how the small things add up.

    Staff from all areas of the organisation were asked to reflect on their personal and collective impact on residents and discussed the simple, everyday actions that make a difference to the lives of the residents and their families, such as a warm smile as the curtains are drawn in the morning or providing support with forms or paperwork.

  • Life was a beach for Harold
    Fri 20 Jul 2018

    Harold Masel was a stand-up pioneer. The long-time Cottesloe resident, who turned 100 last week, lived for the beach. “As a young man, Harold built his own surfboards, the precursor to today’s stand-up paddle boards,” his middle daughter Peta Edwards said. “They were made of plywood and painted canvas – he would take them out on the waves with his friends at Cottesloe.” Harold spent almost every day at Cottesloe beach, surfing and bodysurfing, after learning to swim at Albany while on holiday aged seven.

    He went to Cottesloe Primary School and was at Scotch College from 1933, where he loved other sports. “Harold represented Scotch in Alcock Cup football, the interschool under-15 cricket and the inter-school swimming team,” Dr Edwards said. “He did worry if the family could afford the £7-a-term fees at Scotch.”

    In between Cottesloe primary and Scotch, Harold was at school in Kalgoorlie, where his father had a jewellery shop. Units built for the family at the time – called Bramler House, at 46 Broome Street, near the corner of Broome and Lillian streets – still stand.
