REVIEWS

Tuscawilla Nursing and Rehab is a phenomenal faculty. It is very clean and has a home like atmosphere. I have had fantastic care during my stay here. Everyone is friendly and professional including the administration staff, nurses, aides, rehab, dietitian and food service. Lacy Phillips, the Business Manager has worked very hard to assist me with insurance and future assisted living placement. She is always kind, courteous and explains the process in detail. She is very passionate about working with the elderly. I greatly appreciate all that she has been doing for me. This facility has also worked diligently to safeguard us from the Covid19 virus. They truly care about their residents and treat us with respect. I am grateful for the quality of care that I have received during my stay here.

Tuskawilla like all Skill Nursing and Rehab centers are facing the challenge of keeping their residents and employees safe and free of COVID 19 and they are doing a wonderful job! I know that Nursing homes are bashed by theose believe that one rotten banana spoil the bunch but Tuskawilla is not in the bunch. My mother and I would venture to say that Tuskawilla should be the apple of everyone's eye. I am a minnesotan who got the best care ever. Hello all you wonderful therapy staff, dietary kudos, Activities you rock. I don't want to forget anyone. All the staff are wonderful!!!!
