Home Care Reviews for Chestnut Knoll at Home - Gilbertsville

My mother has an aide from Chestnut Knoll at Home and loves having the assistance. When it became obvious that my mother needed help, but would not let anyone from the family assist her, we turned to an outside agency for help. Mom was very reluctant at first, she did not want to give up any of her independence. The aides came in and made her feel special and totally at ease. She now looks forward to having her "helpers" come in. As a family member, I am very grateful for the assistance. My mother has friendly, helpful and caring people taking care of her. I have the peace of mind knowing that she has faithful and reliable help from people who genuinely care. Thank you Chestnut Knoll at Home for being there when we needed you.

Long Time Client No More In the beginning we had wonderful caregivers but they moved on and after that, it became a struggle for them to find the " right fit" as the majority of the caregivers sent were new hires with no experience in caregiving, some were quite young (18) and when asked about the training, we were given a surprised look like what training. It became sort of a send this person and see if it works. No calls to let use know who was coming, no meeting of the prospective caregiver prior to being assigned.
Provider Response

We are terribly sorry that your experience with Chestnut Knoll at Home has not continued to be ‘wonderful.’ Please know that we take the responsibility of the clients in our care very seriously and, as you indicated, do try to find the ‘right fit’ for clients and caregivers. Hiring, training and scheduling caregivers is always a challenge ~ but our goal is always to manage these issues without it impacting the clients. Chestnut Knoll at Home would like the opportunity to earn back your trust. If we can ever be of service, please let us know.

I live hours away from my mother, and it is comforting to know that her CK at Home caregiver will be there twice each week to help her run errands, take her to a doctor's appointment and cook her a few nourishing meals. An unexpected benefit is how happy Mom is to have the companionship of a lovely new friend on those days. We have both been very satisfied with their services.

We used the services of Chestnut Knoll In-Home Care for my husband. It took them about three weeks to find someone. They were attentive, nurturing and they washed their hands in-between doing things. Most of the agencies had some CNAs and some were not but they were not all trained. The only drawback was they didn't provide RNs. My husband was comfortable and they were excellent. I highly recommend this agency.
