VICENTE C. BASIT
Vicente is a people person. Behind the fierce and firm, bearded look is a kind, gentle and compassionate heart. Vicente is a professional photographer and director for more than 30 years. To be able to deliver the proper message with the right creative treatment, he needs to prepare, inspire and motivate his subjects. His ability to interact and deal with different kinds of people – from business owners, top executives, managers, talents, office workers, production staff and crew, utility and everyone in between – makes it easier for him to present and convey his message to his target audience. He had the privilege of working in a wide variety of projects, handling a 2-person team up to a 300-person full production set-up. This made his journey exciting, wild as a roller coaster ride, but at the same time, very fulfilling.
Before putting up his production company in the Philippines, he worked in the family construction business building roads and bridges and also managed their fishpond, exporting Grouper to Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan.
Providing high quality in-home care to the Senior Community is a personal mission. This is one that is very close to his heart as he witnessed the dedication of amazing caregivers who took care of his parents. He wants to give back to the community by ensuring that seniors are well taken care of by responsible, reliable, compassionate, honest and trustworthy caregivers. This way, seniors are happy, living their lives to the fullest and their families have the peace of mind that their loved ones get the best care they can have.
