Kim Agpoon is the Senior Day Care and Palolo Wellness Program Manager. She started in 2016 as a Program Aide for the Senior Day Care Program. She became the SDC/PWP clerk in 2018. In June of 2022, she was promoted to SDC/PWP Manager. It started when she came back from her Military training and applied at Palolo Chinese Home. She really liked working in the senior day care, especially meeting seniors and able to hear their life stories, and also to care for them. It makes Kim really happy when she sees their smiles and when they are able to do things that they think they can’t do in their senior years. Kim has hands on experience caring for our seniors in Senior Day Care and also for the Palolo Wellness Program and is currently in school studying Public Health Administration. Kim is not just a manager but I’m also a friend to their Seniors and their families that they can reach out to when they need anything.
