About Abigail

Hi! you can call me Ahvi, I've been working as a registered nurse in the Philippines for 5 years, then I went here in the US and have been working as a caregiver for 3 years. I love working as a caregiver because I grew up with my grandma and took care of her for sometime. I see myself helping the elderly because I have the patience and skillset to work for them. I am also a positive minded person and I like to treat my patients as not just someone whom I work for but also as a friend whom I care for. I also work professionally and know how to set my boundaries with my patients and their family. I am very easy to get along with and prioritize my patient's well being, I am also flexible in terms of required care needed and can work well on critical situations.
