In November, we asked you to share your caregiver hero stories with us. There were so many moving submissions, it was hard to choose the winners! We've narrowed it down, and we're excited to bring you a new, inspiring story every week.
Another week and another fantastic Caregiver to honor. This week we celebrate Tansey Shepherd and her amazing story. Tansey was nominated by Shalom Plotkin, Owner of Right At Home, Beachwood, Ohio. Tansey directly impacts her clients' health through her small acts of kindness and patience.
Tansey is super caring and extremely reliable, constantly picking up extra shifts when needed. She’s thoughtful and sweet. She often brings flowers to one of her clients, Lee, just to brighten the room. The little things such as these that set her apart.
Tansey’s patience is one of her greatest traits. Though it may take an hour or more to serve her client Lee a meal, Tansey makes her favorite foods and helps her practice chewing and swallowing. After her discharge from the hospital, her weight was down to 88 lbs. Being in Tansey's care, Lee has now gained significant weight and is now nearly 116 pounds! She may even be discharged from hospice due to increased strength.
Lee has gone from not being able to speak and having pressure sores before she met Tansey, to being able to celebrate her birthday at the art museum! With her patience, and care Tansey has helped her regain her strength and quality of life.
