I chose MediLodge of Gaylord to be closer to my family. There were a couple team members that stood out to me during my stay. Laryssa-Resident Advocate-She is the most relatable, kind and genuine person I know. I was able to put all my trust in her. Barb-Physical Therapy-She knew what I needed and kept me on the right path to not only achieve my goals, but exceed them. Dorothy-Social Services-She saw a better part of me that I forgot I had. I am happy that I am now able to move on but also sad, as I am going to miss so many!
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 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.
The Gorman Family
We would like to thank you for the abundance of kindness, care, and concern you provided for Paul while he was a resident at MediLodge. We would also like to commend your organization for putting together a staff to be very proud of. We were blessed to receive excellent care from the staff at MediLodge.
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."
I didn't know what to expect of MediLodge and all its employees, but I was pleasantly surprised. My first day was busy meeting with silly Della, and then there was Dorothy, social service and the dietician, and the doctor. The days flew by.
As I started to settle in, I started meeting some more fantastic people. The day nurses Alicia and Crystal, to name a couple than night time nurses Lauren and deb, to name a couple. Then there are the CNA'S and CENA'S Kelly, John, Damien, and Tyler. I haven't learned everyone's name, unfortunately. And I can't forget the ladies that give the showers, Sandy and Nicole.
My goal to leave here was the fantastic therapy team, who don't like taking no for an answer. I worked with just about everyone on there, including Barb, Todd, Tim, Leo, and Ashley. I loved the different activities they offer here, such as Bingo, Bounce Ball, Activities Cart, to name a few. All in all, my stay here was a lot more than I expected. I can't thank you all enough.
