Hi, my name is Tenaya. I live in Fort Worth, TX and I have three years of experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of a loved one. I have a severely autistic son and I became attached to helping people, so I started this journey to help other people and benefit from it.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to give to a new caregiver is to get to know your client. Learn their do's and don'ts and what system works for you guys. That way you guys can be close.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget is Sydney. He was very loving, so sweet and while working with him that's when I found out that my son was severely autistic as well. I learned great tips from him, learned more dos and don'ts and I can help other people who are going through the same situation as I am.
