Anna has been a Support Star with Alliance Community SA for almost a year and loves making a difference each and every day!
“I’m really proud when a client asks for me again, then I know I have done my job. I became a Support Star after my mum was in need of care after some surgeries. I was able to help her recover, which was extremely rewarding."
"Seeing her appreciate me and having a smile at the end of the day was just fantastic. One particular memory I have is helping a client with a disability who wasn’t keen on too much support. She has now become more open and focused on her rehabilitation, independence and more appreciative of her carer’s support."
"Overall, there is so much I love about being a Support Star with Alliance Community. My favourite moments are seeing a client happy, being a part of their life and knowing I’m supporting them achieving their independence.”
Anna’s advice for someone considering becoming a Support Star?
“Be willing to work hard to know your client’s needs, be kind, smile, have fun when you can and be productive when you need to be. At the end of the day you are making a difference in someone’s life.”
