Share Their Stories, Make a Difference

About Beyond Words
Beyond Words is a Melbourne-based not-for-profit organisation dedicated to crafting personal biographies for people living in aged care residences, creating cherished mementos that recognise their extraordinary lives.

How your donation can help

Your support can make a world of difference in our mission. By donating, you can directly contribute to the creation of these meaningful biographies.

  • A donation of $20 can cover the cost of printing materials and a beautifully bound biography
  • A donation of $50 can cover the cost of recording equipment used to transcribe interviews
  • A donation of $100 can help provide supervision and training to our growing pool of volunteer biographers

Why Your Support Matters

  • Admission to an aged care residence can be experienced as a time of great loss, loneliness, isolation, grief and depression.
  • Many elderly individuals in aged care facilities feel overlooked, but their stories are invaluable.
  • Through our personal biographies, we provide a heartfelt gift that acknowledges their journey, passions and life lessons.
  • These personal biographies serve as a source of recognition, giving our elders a sense of pride and fulfillment.

Share their stories, make a difference: give the gift of Personal Biographies to those living in aged care.

Because every life is a story waiting to be told.
