#PeopleofArcare – Hersh Singh


  • What is your name and role at Arcare?

My name is Hersh Singh, and I am currently working as a Residence Manager with Arcare. 

  • What Arcare residence do you work at?

Arcare Brighton.

  • How long have you been working at Arcare?

I joined Arcare in 2017 as a Registered Nurse and have had the pleasure of working at various Arcare residences since. 

  • What do you enjoy about your role and working in aged care?

I appreciate that my role and working in aged care gives me the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives. I enjoy that I get to build relationships with residents, their families and the team members. It’s a close-knit community here at Arcare Brighton. 

  • What is a memorable moment or story you recall working at your residence with either a resident or a team member?

Not a story, but one aspect of working at Arcare that I cherish the most is being able to listen to the life stories of the residents. Whether it be a story of their childhood, a tale of romance or recounting their courageous acts during the war, each story is unique, fascinating and cultivates a new perspective on life.  

  • What pearls of wisdom or words of encouragement do you live by?

I swear by the famous saying by Carl W. Buehner, “They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel”. I truly believe that being kind and compassionate towards one another is the way to go about life. 

  • What hobbies or interests do you have outside of work?

I enjoy camping, hiking and photography. I find spending time out in the nature is very rejuvenating and also gives me the opportunity to spend quality time with my family and friends.
