Have you ever wanted to be “the ultimate caregiver”?
Tena L. Scallan, The Ultimate Caregiving Expert, is a caregiving advocate who combined her talent for entrepreneurship with her care experience. On her featured post for Donna Thomson’s blog The Caregivers’ Living Room, Tena writes about her passion for helping others. She began work at a Home Health agency, eventually running her own home care business and working in every department of hospital.
Now, she runs The Ultimate Caregiving Expert, a service that provides virtual assistance to help lighten the load for entrepreneurs who are trying to run their business while taking care of a loved one. Additionally, she offers caregiving coaching/consulting services and products, as well as caregiving resources through her website.
Tena’s advice to being “the ultimate caregiver” is to have patience, be gracious, and stay organized. “Caregiving can happen at a moment’s notice and you may not know what to do at first. My website was created to help with anything caregiver related” Tena says.
