“I was a patient at Auburn Homes in Waconia, MN from February 13th until April 4th. I want to tell you what a great place it was to be. I needed to recover from extensive surgery. I received the best care I could have gotten. Everyone there gave help and encouragement . The nurses were the best. I received great physical therapy. Everyone was nice. I want to say thank you. I would recommend Auburn Homes to everyone who needs care.”
