Martha Murray

Hello, my name is Martha. A little about me - I was born in London and spent my formative years here - actually, all my years have been formative in one way or another. I appreciated opportunities that took me across the border and the across the ocean to live but London has always been home. I have two sons of whom I am most proud, both have wonderful families and they too are happily experiencing life away from London. I am fortunate to be a senior and to have the opportunity and ability to assist some of my peers to get through their day comfortably, with some companionship and hopefully a smile…at the same time perhaps offer family and friends some respite. I chose to work with At Your Service for Seniors because they have the same sensibilities as I do, compassion, empathy and patience - they believe too that the client comes first.

I still have a lot to learn and I have learned many extraordinary things so far, as well as making new friends, which is one of the things I really love. Thank you for letting me experience this amazing work.

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 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.

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.

Ted L pic

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.
