Welcome to our Volunteer Stories page.

Each video showcases the inspiring journey of individuals who have dedicated their time, skills, and life experience to make a difference in the ACH Group community.

Edward, volunteering at Kapara Residential Care Home

Edward is in his final year of school and has started his journey towards a career in medicine. He visits people living at Kapara on Sundays and is also working on a Year 12 project to encourage more younger people to volunteer in aged care.

Janette and Addi, volunteering at Sing for Joy Choir

Addi and Janette volunteer on a Wednesday afternoon at the Sing for Joy Choir and are both retired. They believe volunteering gives you a purpose in life and encourages everyone to try it and find the right role for them. 

Johann, volunteering at ViTA Residential Care Home

Johann was initially introduced to ACH Group while doing her nursing placement at ViTA. She connected with one of the residents so much that she decided to come back on a regular basis as a social volunteer.

Su, volunteering at Healthia Residential Care Home

Su is currently studying at TAFE and volunteers on a Monday afternoon, teaching origami to people living at Healthia. Su found volunteering at ACH Group friendly and welcoming, and believes that if you have a warm heart and a big smile, you have everything you need to start.

What does your Monday afternoon usually look like? For Su, an international student at TAFE SA, it is a time dedicated to volunteering at Healthia Residential Care Home. Su’s creativity and origami skills are well admired by the residents. With origami, you start with a blank piece of paper, and it is up to your intention and skill what you create. It is, in a way, a fitting analogy to describe volunteering.

Su added that she believes if you have a warm heart and a big smile, you have everything you need to start.

Su, you are a true inspiration to many of us at ACH Group. Thank you for connecting with residents through the art of origami, bringing extra kindness and gentleness into their life. 🙌

Thank you for filming me. I’m visiting on Monday because I don’t have a class. So, I became a “Monday girl” 😄 I hope more people will enjoy volunteer work by sharing my story. 💕
