The Rathdowne Stories website showcases the results of a class project undertaken by students from Swinburne University’s Master of Media and Communication.

You will find a number of text and video profiles created by students from the many fascinating life stories told by seniors currently in residence at Rathdowne Place Aged Care.

This project is an ongoing collaboration between Australian Unity at Rathdowne Place and Swinburne University’s media and communication department to find ways to document the many different accomplishments of these incredible seniors.

As they transition from independent to assisted living, this is an opportunity to celebrate the unique lives and identities of the residents of Rathdowne Place.

We hope you enjoy them.
