nurse coming to home was nice and knowegable but office staff were rude when oi called in to ask guestions. boss shaunen did not seem to be concerned when home health aides were not available to come out for my scheduled baths and company seems to be very much under staffed. anytime my routine nurse or aide may be sick either i would not receive services at all or schduled days were moved without a phone call to let me know. overall i was not satisfied with care from this agency.
