Hello! My name is Kim Lounsbury. I have been a stay at home mom for 15 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I was a Head Teacher in daycare for many years before I had my own children; however, my passion is helping the elderly. I was raised by my grandma who lived to be 99 yrs. and spent a great deal of time worrying and caring for her in her senior years. I am very involved with my church and I volunteer to help with my pastor's elderly mother. We talk, laugh and play cards together. I help her get around with her walker and to use the bathroom. I heat her meals and give her her medication.I am on a waiting list to take a Personal Care Assistant class through Saint Francis hospital and would love to begin working while I am waiting. I am responsible, reliable and I have a caring, gentle demeanor. I want to make a positive difference in the lives of the elderly because I know first hand the difficulties they face during this period in life. Please contact me at your convenience. Sincerely, Kim.
