I do enjoy my time working with AYSFS! I find it very gratifying to see the difference you can make in a senior’s life just by spending time with them. I have a very special bond with each of my clients and love them to bits.
I have taught in our Children’s Church for over 20 years, also help in our children’s program, Awana for the last 8 years.
I find pleasure working in my garden and watching the birds while I’m working in my kitchen. I do love to cook and bake healthy foods.
I am married with two wonderful adult children. Love my family and my job!

Ted has a great sense of humour! He also, as per comments from seniors that have had his assistance, is very caring and considerate – anticipating their needs and responding in a gracious manner.

Ted is very musical and has been honoured with a Juno award for his excellent guitar playing.

This occupation seemed a perfect fit after caring for my grandfather for 20 years. Seventeen years of that was driving him around for chores and visits to see his friends one day a week. It was a joy to listen to all the stories.

He became ill and it was decided I’d move in to help care for him so he could stay in his own home longer. We’d work on getting the stories down to his pictures for his family tree. The daily news was read to him and discussed at length. He passed away a few years ago. I’ve realized I miss listening to the stories of days past.

After caring for my mom (who was my best friend) when she became ill, then needing palliative care; I discovered that caring for people in the later stages of their lives was something I really enjoy doing.

My Christian background helps me help my clients understand their journey from this world into the next. I love to be their advocate , friend and sometimes their teacher. In turn they teach me so very much from their own personal life experiences that it has helped me become more compassionate, empathetic and hungry to become a better person each day. The people I have been set up with have brought me so many rewarding experiences and I feel so blessed to be doing a job that makes a difference.

As a parent of teenagers I relish my time with my elderly friends/clients. Whether I am doing dishes while having a discussion about the current state of the world, picking up much needed groceries or just lending a willing hand with housework, I do it with a smile.

I love helping to extend the independent lifestyle of seniors. I enjoy cooking/baking, as evidenced in my employment at Dishington’s Tearoom in Lambeth, reading, spending time with my family and enjoying a cup of coffee over shared wisdom.
