About Caring Heart Placement in Scottsdale, AZ

Sue Mulligan

Founder/Senior Care Advisor

I am very passionate about helping Seniors and I truly enjoy connecting with them and their loved ones. I love to hear all of their stories about their life, children, travels and past careers to get to know each senior individually. While I was working in a community, I took great pride in knowing all the residents by their first name which could sometimes be as many as 120 seniors.

There is no greater thrill for me than walking into a room and seeing a senior’s eyes light up with true joy and excitement. I do this because I love seeing their big smiles and enjoy making each of them feel special. People often say you should do a job that you love so much it does not feel like work. I truly feel that this is my calling. There is no greater job for me than making connections with seniors and their loved ones.

I have been helping families find their loved ones the senior care that they need for more than 10 years. Their families find comfort knowing that I am always available for their call 7 days a week. They know that they can reach out to me anytime and I will take care of anything they may need.

I value the importance of checking in on and continuing to visit your loved ones even after they are placed in a community. In fact, I still visit some of the first seniors that I helped find care for nearly 10 years later. I love to take pictures with them to share with their families.

I was born and raised in Wisconsin and have been living in Arizona for the last 20 years. Since moving to Arizona, I have had the opportunity to work at 3 different senior living communities in the Valley. During that time, I have been able to help over 1,000 seniors and their families. I have enjoyed meeting with each family and understanding their senior’s unique needs to ensure that their family member finds the best suited community.

In the past, I was sad that the community I worked for was not always the one they chose, but now I am excited to use my expertise to represent the seniors and help find the perfect fit for their loved ones. Therefore, I created my own placement company with a FREE no cost service so I can help guide each family I come in contact with through this process.

My goal is to make this process as easy and simple as I can. When I am not working directly with seniors, I am out touring new communities, networking with others in the industry, and volunteering in order to locate the best communities to fit each senior’s needs and budget. This helps me understand what each community has to offer and what sets them apart from the others.

I am also continuing to build my vendor contacts referral system. This allows me to provide quick solutions and abundant resources for whatever a family may need. This includes in-home care, hospital beds, durable medical equipment and much more.

Let me know how I can help!

About Caring Heart Placement in Scottsdale, AZ

Therese Mulligan

Senior Care Advisor
I have been a realtor in Arizona for the past 20 years. During that time, I have found that I have especially enjoyed working with seniors. I personally remember how overwhelming it was when it was time for my mother to transition into assisted living. There were so many communities and group homes with various levels of care. It was difficult to understand what all of the different terms meant and what all of the options were.
I realized how much help families need navigating through this process as I did. That is when I became interested in shifting from real estate to becoming a Senior Care Advisor. I wanted to make the process cost free and simple by taking away all the stress that I went through. While there are a lot of similarities between both professions, I am excited to focus solely on helping seniors and their families. I have even been known to help walk their dogs! I look forward to making your journey easy and with a caring heart.
