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.

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.
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.
My stay was perfect in every sense. Everyone here has been incredible. I came here to get better, and I did. I plan on returning for a visit when I can.
The whole staff is terrific; they took me in as a long lost son. I couldn't be happier! It's excellent here, you ask for a cup of coffee at Sam, they get you a cup of coffee. The food was excellent compared to the last place. There's no better place to be. I can't thank everyone enough.
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 was diagnosed with cancer back in June of this year. After being at two other treatment centers, I came to MediLodge of Gaylord to get my strength back.
After six weeks, I’ve been able to go from hardly walking at all to walking over 1,000 feet at a time.
They are just great people, from the therapists down to the aides. It’s just a great place to get treatment. They can help you with whatever you have going on.
I chose MediLodge of Gaylord for myself to receive physical therapy and I am happy that I did. I can’t say that there was a specific department or person that stood out amongst the rest because everybody is somebody. Everyone here is very important and wonderful. It doesn’t matter what job they held; Nurse, Kitchen staff, Housekeeping, Office staff or any other job in between. Everybody works hard to do such a great job. I was very well cared for here. Everyone treated me with respect and I would recommend MediLodge of Gaylord to anyone who may need care. I would also like to add that I am very appreciative to every staff member here and they deserve to be given respect, honor and dignity for all of their hard work.
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.
