Scott L. Swanson
President and CEO
Since 1986, Scott has served the senior housing industry in executive roles at several well-respected, non-profit communities, most recently The Danish Home of Chicago for the past six years.
As president and CEO of The Danish Home, Scott’s key responsibilities are overseeing operations and implementing fundraising efforts. He is a native of Rockford, IL, graduate of the prestigious J.L. Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University (MBA), and a licensed nursing home administrator.
Although a veteran of senior housing, Scott is continually inspired by The Danish Home’s legacy of heritage, family bonds across the generations and well over a century of commitment to quality care for older adults. According to Scott, it is “the relationships with our residents and their families” that he enjoys most about working with The Danish Home community.
