Holly Williams

Hello, my name is Holly Williams. I am an army-brat who moved to London in 1986. I became a member of the Parkwood Mental Health Family Advisory Council this year. I also co-facilitate a Family Education class there to support family members with mental illness. I especially became interested in helping people keep their independence when my grandmother had Alzheimer, and when different friends and family members experienced various health problems. Over the years I have volunteered for many causes such as MS Bike ride, Sunfest, El-Systema, CNIB, groups within my church and events at Parkwood. It has provided me with many ways to personally help my friends and community. Initially, I have been a certified Payroll Manager with the Canadian Payroll Association for over 25 years working in both private and public corporations. I also started to prepare personal taxes in the winter. Now I am looking forward to a more people approach to my days through working with At Your Service for Seniors. I have many interests such as live music, plays, cards, travel, walks by the water and my cat! I have even dabbled in Paint-Night and other crafty things. Hopefully I can be of some for help you.

Lianne St.Thomas

I was employed as a Program Worker in Toronto providing fun activities for seniors with Dementia. Two of the most important pieces I've learned from my clients are living a quality life that I'm most proud of and health comes before money. Well, I'm not the healthiest person - I love junk food, especially chips, so living a quality life (with my family) comes first to me (non-negotiable). Part of living a quality life also includes having the power to say No, in which I'm mastering, and being able to be selfless no matter what challenges come to you, so my client's mental, physical, and emotional well-being are also important to me; I have their back! My clients will have fun in my presence. We will be singing, dancing, walking, playing cards, gardening (I'm not good at it, but I'll do it), chatting, watching movies (crying, laughing, getting angry, feeling motivated, etc.), and figuring things out together. What's important is just as long as our days together are one of your memorable days here on Earth, I am here for you! Thank you!

Dennis Koopman

Hi, I have been a Londoner most of my life and am looking forward to making things better together. I have a recent degree in Sociology from Western followed by Gerontology Interprofessional Practice Certificate from Fanshawe.

All the while I made sure that my parents were able to live life fully in their own home. I want to make a positive difference.

Tracy Gavloski

Hello, My name is Tracy. I am a wife and a mother to a 17 year old son. I have lived in London all of my life. Currently I do family home support for a child with disabilities. Before doing support work I was a Travel Agent for 10 years. I enjoy meeting and talking to new people and love hearing about people's life experiences. I believe it is so important for seniors to remain in their homes for as long as possible and I feel honoured that I can help make that happen. I believe my purpose in life is to help others. Some of my hobbies and interests are card & board games, cooking, watching classic movies, reading fiction, music, computers & technology and walks with my dog. I look very forward to meeting you and helping in any way that I can.

Rob Schwarzer

After 36 years at Parkwood Hospital as a health care provider I decided I needed a change of pace and different setting. I am looking forward to helping seniors in their home with various tasks and getting the chance to meet new people and take on new challenges. I am a willing participant in conversation of all topics and have a knack for making people chuckle even when they don't want to...and I love hearing about a persons past experience and life stories all while knowing I will be gaining wisdom and enjoyment from them.

Glenna Harris

After providing customer service in tourism for 20+ years, I was yearning to do something more meaningful. While escorting tour groups for seniors, I discovered my innate ability to get along with older adults. I’m naturally curious, so I love hearing stories and learning from the wisdom our elders have to share. Watching my grandmother live with Dementia and Macular Degeneration gave me a new level of sympathy towards the challenges of growing older. If I can help brighten a senior’s day by just being there with a smile, and help out with simple daily tasks to allow them to stay in their own home longer, I am genuinely happy to help any way I can.

Robyn Hall

I have over 30 years customer service experience, 20 in the home health care sector. I helped seniors select mobility equipment, daily living aids, support garments, breast prosthesis and wigs.

I understand fully the challenges seniors face day to day and how they need to be treated with sensitivity and respect. I enjoy being with seniors very much! I find their knowledge and life experiences very interesting. Being able to help them keep their dignity and independence is very rewarding to me and I look forward to giving the best quality service I can give with AYSFS.

On a personal note I am a foodie and music addict who enjoys cooking, music, entertaining and just hanging out with my husband and twin daughters.

I look forward to learning about their lives from our very important clients.

Heather Cooper

After being most fortunate to work 32 yrs in the health care field as part of the non medical health care management team my friend and I had a dream. Our dream was to support seniors to remain living in their home/castle.

In 2007 Joan Turner made that dream come true. I am honoured to have had the opportunity to be part of At Your Service For Seniors from the onset.

Having the opportunity to help someone smile, encourage them to do the best they can do and having them say thank you for being part of my life is the most fulfilling experience anyone could ask for.

My passion is spending quality time with my husband, children and 4 grandchildren as well s working at the family wedding DJ business.

Jen Kambulow

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.

Barb McIntyre

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!

Juliana Bennett

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.

Ted Leonard

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.

Bonnie Pitts

My name is Bonnie Pitts and I believe “home is where the heart is”. I feel passionate about assisting seniors to stay in their homes as long as possible. A little help around the house, a listening ear, perhaps the occasional shopping trip may be just

what a senior needs to “feel the love” again. I am a country girl at heart, although I now live in the city with my husband and our 6 year old son. I give to my community by volunteering at my son’s school.

Jeanne Walker

After over 20 years as a massage therapist in London, I moved back to my hometown of Cambridge to care for my mom in her last years. It was the most wonderful experience I ever had and I learned that being of service to seniors was the work I wanted to do the rest of my life.

It took a while to find the right organization when I moved back to London, but when I found AYSFS I knew I was home. I love spending time with seniors, getting to know them and helping them fulfill their needs, wants and accessing things that bring them joy. In my spare time I enjoy walks along the many river trails in London, time with friends. and working with a local cat rescue.

Lesley Neable

My name is Lesley Neable and I have 4 wonderful children. I have worked in the health field my whole life. Caring for people has always been what I enjoy most so caring for seniors seemed like a natural fit for me.

I love hearing the life stories of my clients as well as news about their grandchildren and great grandchildren. Seniors have lived so much of their lives that it’s a privilege for me to get to assist them in their daily routines and living. I feel blessed to be able to work for AYSFS and to be doing a job that gives dignity, love and care to people who couldn’t deserve it more.

Becky Bint

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.

caring at your service for seniors staff renee
Renee Riley

I have spent the last decade at home as an at home parent and a childcare provider. I have enjoyed my time with the school aged children in my care over the years but when it came time to look at working outside the home I just knew that it had to be with Seniors. One of my dearest friends was a Senior I met while volunteering at a community centre in Ottawa. He was a wonderful man with a quick wit and I enjoyed spending time with him. I want to offer support to Seniors in their home and assist them in daily activities. I can’t iron, but I can bake and know my way around a vacuum cleaner. When I am not working outside the home I enjoy spending time with my family. I love to read, go for walks, watch movies and spending time with my pets.

Betty Johnston

I have recently retired after 28 years as a Pharmacy Technician. I was looking forward to the next step in my life. I found that I missed the people who were a daily part of my job. I realized that helping people of all ages was very satisfying to me.

That is why I decided to be an Associate for AYSFS. Being able to help a person, whether it is driving them to an appointment, shopping, visit a friend, clean or just sit and talk will not only help them in everyday living but also give me a opportunity to give back. I believe AYSFS is a good fit for me and looking forward to this new phase in my life.

I have been married for 43 years to my high school sweetheart (Jim). We have two boys, and 3 lovely grand-girls. Love spending time with them all. I enjoy walking, shopping, attending events, lunches/breakfasts and going to movies with my friends.
