About Tamara

My name is Tamara Shelton. I am a single mother of 3 children. I am a born nurturer. The caregiving role chose me. From the time I was 5 years old I spent a lot of time with my grandmother. As we both aged she went from taking care of me to me taking care of her. I took it on as my personal thing to do. I did not want anyone doing for her except me and my mom. I enjoyed knowing that anything I could do to make her life easier helped her be more at ease in life. My personal achievement I am proud of is being able to care for others when they need it most.

Larry Ellison
I entered into a relationship with a dialysis patient and he needed assistance with things such as driving him to the treatment center, changing bandages and checking his site for any leakage. His kidney disease caused other diseases such as congestive heart, failure, RLS, and sleep apnea. These all I studied on and did things such as change his diet to not cooking with salt, cleaning his c-pap, and foot soaking to prevent sores on his feet
