The staff is wonderful, PT and OT are great. The CNA's and nurses are awesome, the activities they offer are great. I love everybody!
I wanted to take a moment and send a huge note of thanks and appreciation to you and the excellent staff at MediLodge of Gaylord for all that you did for my dad, Thomas Walker. During his stay at your facility, he received exceptional care and compassion from his entire care team. Please share a sincere thank you to each of them from me. As his daughter living 7+ hours away, I took comfort in knowing he was in a place that was taking such great care of him during this difficult time. He often spoke of how nice, friendly, and helpful everyone was towards him as well as how delicious the food was. I know how grumpy he can be sometimes, especially with how sick he has been. Thank you for getting him rehabilitated enough to be able to transition back to his home. He is doing as best as he can, given the circumstances, and is grateful to be home again. On behalf of our entire family, thank you again for the great work you all do. It has not gone unnoticed. Have a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving holiday.
Dear Staff + Friends
Just a brief thank you for all of the love and care I received over the past six weeks here. Tomorrow I go home to Pellston. I will miss everyone.
My favorite pastime was watching the fish and garden! I am planning on getting some fish when I get home as they are easy, fun companions!
Keep up the wonderful work, and I will be back to visit soon.
Story of Daniel Ford
When Daniel Ford came to MediLodge of Gaylord, He had a capped off trach, and a need of therapies to regain his strength physically and confidence in self cares. Although a self-proclaimed “loner”, Daniel spoke of the bond he shared with staff at MediLodge of Gaylord. With tears in both his, and his daughter’s eyes he stated “everyone here has become like family.” His daughter added “everyone is very accommodating, to him, me and my kids. I’m so glad I could bring them in to see him”
Daniel worked hard to regain his strength and was able to walk out the doors of MediLodge of without his Trach! Daniel is a true testimony of strength, hard work, and drive. We are so grateful that we were able to be a part of his healing process. Best of luck to you, and your family, Daniel.
Everyone – custodians, nurses, doctors, aides – are great at MediLodge of Gaylord! It was such an uplifting experience to have so many care for me like they did. MediLodge of Gaylord is a wonderful place to receive care.

"I would like to take this opportunity to give a special thank you to the staff of your vent unit. Can I say what a blessing to have such a wonderful staff and medical facility. My sister was a patient there for the past ten years and your staff from day one of my visit to the last, was OUTSTANDING. It's not often that you find the complete staff or organization with such a positive outlook and attitude. I must say that is exactly what I observed during my visits. I know in a lot of ways she became a member of your family there, and I am so glad you were able to share part of your life with her."
Bruce and Barbara Wood
I wish that I could personally thank every single person here, in every department, on every shift. The staff are tremendous and always friendly. The therapies were terrific, the food was great, five stars all the way.
His wife Barbara added,
They were good, to all of us. That means A lot.
The MacDonald Family
To the staff and workers of MediLodge,
The MacDonald family would like to thank you for the wonderful care of our mom; Carol MacDonald received while living there.
She loved you all very much, and we loved it when we walked in and could hear her laugh because one of you would take the extra time to make her day and make her laugh.
We also liked when we could come, and one or two of you would be comforting her.
We are all going to miss her yaya's and again thank you very much.
I chose MediLodge of Gaylord because it is closer to friends and family. It is hard to choose any one person that stood out to me because they are all great. Everyone treated me like family and made me feel at home!

"I like the activities we do here. Playing cards is my favorite, but we also do puzzles, games, etc. We even have a coffee hour to just plain talk and really get to know each other."
