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

Bonnie Abbott, RN
Manager of WV Aged and Disabled Waiver Programs
Bonnie comes to us with 17 years of nursing experience. Working in a variety of different settings including medical/surgical, ob/gyn, pacu and same day surgery. She has an Associate Degree in Nursing from Bluefield State college. Prior to working at Right at Home she worked in long-term care as a Nurse Manager at a nursing home.
Bonnie is the manager of the WV Aged and Disabled Waiver programs at the Beckley office. She also works with the homemaker program for the Veterans. She provides caregiver training and teaches CPR.
She works with the caregivers ensuring that the client is getting the best care possible.
In her previous work history, she has worked for the Veterans Administration. She loves working with the veteran population as she feels she can give back a little to the veterans that have so selflessly given of themselves for our country. She is able to continue her work with the veterans thru Right at Home.
Bonnie feels that she has found her “niche” with Right at Home. It is a great mixture that allows her to contribute her years of nursing experience and knowledge with going into the home to do assessments and evaluate the clients in their surroundings. Actually, forming a plan of care that is client centered to their individual needs.
Bonnie enjoys being able to provide care for the client in their homes allowing them to be able to stay in their familiar surroundings and in their communities instead of the alternative of being in a nursing facility.
Bonnie’s heart has always been in nursing. She wanted to be a nurse as a child and has be blessed to achieve her dream. She is thankful for the opportunity to work with the geriatric and disabled population finding her job very rewarding.
