It's never easy looking after a non-verbal autistic teenager. I made a booking for Tina, but on the first day that Tina's group of caregivers were engaged to provide respite care, they had to leave - he had suddenly gone into an epileptic seizure and required a different type of care for the day. However, Tina has a good heart. She's really good and I was really touched. Because Tina had already committed, she decided to avail me of the benefits at the next session - it is nobody's fault that the boy had a seizure on the appointed day. So Tina's group of caregivers dropped by on another day. The specific caregiver in question - Mark - helped care for the boy for some 5 hours to allow me to carry out other urgent duties.
