Tessy’s Story

I grew up in Peru and moved to the U.S. when I was sixteen. I was very young and green, scared,  but I knew the opportunities that the U.S. would bring. Myself and my 5 other brothers and sisters, worked hard to become citizens and made our lives in this country.
During this time, my mom wanted to stay in Peru though we all wanted her here in the U.S. with us. When she no longer could care independently for herself, my family and I didn’t know what to do. We were all here, with our families and responsibilities. It was a tough emotional time for me, not knowing what I could do for her, being thousands of miles away.
We thankfully found a live-in to be with my mom in Peru, and it was such a blessing and relief knowing that my mother could go on living in a home that my family bought for her.
I realized that there are other families that are going through the same thing, and knowing the frustration and turmoil my family and I went through looking for someone to help my mother in a different country, I  looked into starting a homecare company. When Perfect Solutions for Seniors was founded in 2005, I was a one-woman show. I was the owner, receptionist, administrator, marketer and even the caregiver!
 I am no stranger to hard work and starting from the bottom! It was difficult at the beginning, but I believed in providing great care for Seniors. For 11 years perfect solution for seniors was a homemakers and companion company until I spoke to my daughters and we decided to become a home health agency. With Francesca’s intelligence and Cassandra’s dedication we obtained our license, in 2018.
Family is everything to me. Family gave me the reason to look into starting my own company, and family is the foundation for what keeps Perfect Solutions for Seniors striving to provide the best care for our clients.

My story on,why I am in home care

My story on,why I am in home care

My first job at 14 years old was working with the elderly. I had landed a job at a nursing home in Southwest Florida, as a dietary aid. I remember working there and feeling happy helping those in need. Throughout my teenage years, I was working in either nursing homes or assisted living homes…. I enjoyed being around the residents.,,,,, Listening to their stories and helping them in any and all needs. It came so natural to me, to give and care for others.

I also remember my mother telling me of my grandmother in Peru, how she had someone there to care for her in her home. This always stood in the back of my mind….. How one day I will have to either be there for my parents or hire someone to help them at home. I wanted to learn more of the process…how, why, what, when…it seemed to be a very important decision and process that I should know more about.

Now, at this time, I also have a parent who is in their 80s, lives alone, has some health conditions, and lives far from family. So, I understand and relate to how some of the families or clients may feel or have thoughts on.

I have the desire to help all parties involved; client, families, caregivers, other resources, etc. We all want care.. good quality care… for our loved ones! I want to be part of that process… to help ensure that all people are comfortable, happy, learning, growing, and being! …I want that for my parents, grandparents….I would want that for any one! We are here to help and care for one another, and this is one way that I can offer my help, because it is my passion!
