About Susan

My name is Susan Sheehan. I have always been a care taker at heart. i enjoy meeting new people, i like talking to people. I like to laugh, and I really do think its good medicine. I love animals, and I really do get alone well with older people. I have a very old soul. And I learn a lot when taking care of senors. The last man I took care of was on a feeding tube. I felt so bad for him. he couldn't even take a sip of water. He couldn't walk when I first went to take care of him. the house was a mess, his son never helped him, the way he was supposed to. I took him under my wing, did physical therapy every day. I got him out of bed every day, and we walked. I moved him down stairs once he was able to walk, so that he would be happier, and have a big window to look out of. I had everything organized, and clean. I felt really good about his mental health after I got there. I took care of him for approx. 6-8 mo. When he passed, I felt very good about the fact that he was happy. well, as happy as he could be in his condition. I know that no one could have done a better job then I did. He was always clean, warm, and dry, and I always kept a smile on his face.
