Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Stillwater, MN
Stung by unproffessionalism April 20, 2015
I am a past client of this provider
After careful evaluation from this home care agency--including paid time by three of their caregivers to observe my mom's needs while still in a nursing home--we were assured they could care adequately for her. We then gave up her spot at the nursing home and brought her home. With no changes on our part and nothing new regarding my mom, we were told after only eleven days they could no longer provide service. We trusted them with this very difficult decision and have now been left to do full time care on our own and start from scratch trying to find a solution. Inexcusable for a company that should be making these type of transitions easier. Beware! of Home Instead Stillwater/Blaine office!
