About Prudence

I'm honest, compassionate, caring, reliable, and hardworking. I have always been a nurturer and had a passion for caring for people. I was attracted to the field of nursing when my Grandfather got cancer. I saw how he was cared for by the nurses who took cared of him, and how they supported us during such a trying period of our life. That experience made me realize that I'd love to care for those who can no longer care for themselves like they'd like to. It brings me joy whenever I see my clients face light up with joy whenever they see me. It makes me know that I'm doing my job right and that I established a relationship where my clients can trust me, which is important.
