Tefera M


Tefera originates from Ethiopia and possesses more than ten years of experience as an accomplished caregiver. His academic journey towards knowledge culminates in a Doctoral qualification from Grand Canyon University and a Master’s Degree, highlighting his outstanding intellectual abilities from Lindenwood University. His wealth of knowledge is further demonstrated by his time as a university professor and published author.

Despite his multifaceted career, Tefera’s heart has always been in caregiving, a field he approaches with immense respect, passion, and organization. His fondness for caregiving is embodied in his relationships with his clients. He particularly cherishes the memory of a client who served in Vietnam. The stories shared from that time enriched his understanding of human resilience. His clients’ narratives are not just stories to Tefera, but valuable insights into their lives, which form the basis of his personalized care.

Tefera’s professional competence includes working with Dementia/Alzheimer’s patients’ unique needs with empathy, deep understanding, and exceptional compassion. Though he harbors experience in nebulizer treatments or walker assistance, his specialty is companionship care.

When not attending to clients’ needs, Tefera appreciates quality time for introspection and engaging in hobbies like reading books or watching movies.

Tefera demonstrates exceptional qualities making him stand out amongst healthcare providers; he couples his diverse talents with a deep devotion to patient welfare and respect for their stories, uniquely positioning him as a pivotal figure and positively impacting clients’ lives daily.
