Meet Our Registered Nurse on Staff
Tressea L. Frazier, RN-BC RN
Tressea has 30 years experience in a variety of settings including home health, hospice, acute and long-term care. She has an Associate Degree in Business; Associate Degree in Nursing; and a Regent’s Bachelor of Arts from Bluefield State College, Bluefield, WV. Prior to Right at Home she worked for 7 years in a Long-Term Care/Rehab setting. Her duties over those years ranged from RN Assessment Coordinator, Administrator in Training and Assistant Administrator.

Tressea does Case Management for Right at Home's WV Aged and Disabled Waiver clients; Caregiver training; and Client assessment and amendments to the Plan of Care as needed. She acts as resource liaison to clients and their families.
Although she trained and became a licensed nursing home administrator, she realized that was not the path for her. In her role at Right at Home, she is able to support clients in their desire to remain in their homes for as long as they safely and practicably can. Through Tressea's years of experience in dealing with the geriatric population, it became clear to her that in most cases, her patients were happier and recovered more quickly in their home setting. Tressea finds it rewarding to be able to support and assist clients and families in achieving that goal.Beth Thomas RN, BS

Prior to Right at Home she worked for 10 years with the IDD Waiver program, a job she also loved. She is the clinical supervisor for Right at Home and carries a caseload.
She loves working with the elderly and disabled, and enjoys the fact that she can help them stay in their own home. She supervises the caregivers that assist them with their daily routine so they are safe staying in their homes. She feels honored to work with these individuals and values all the wisdom they have shared with her.
Scarlett Thompson, RN, BSN
Scarlett Thompson has always been a caregiver to someone—she provided care for her mother who had Alzheimer’s and dementia. When her husband was on life support for 12 weeks due to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), she was his primary caregiver as well.
“I have always worked in some facet of health care before I became a registered nurse,” says Scarlett. “My past jobs included medical billing, insurance eligibility, transcription, wound care and aquatic therapy. Taking care of others’ needs is what I do.”
She attended Mountain State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2012 and is certified in hospice care. Prior to joining Right at Home in summer of 2017, she held positions including care manager for hospice compasses and RN at the orthopedic and pediatric floors of Princeton Community Hospital.
As the personal care RN at Right at Home, Scarlett also facilitates caregiver and CPR certification training programs.
