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.
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.
You gave me a home when I really needed it and the care that I got there [MediLodge of Gaylord] was really great! I made some great friends and met some wonderful people who care about their job and their patients. I would highly recommend MediLodge of Gaylord to anyone! If anything happens to me, I’m coming home, to MediLodge. Love to each and every one of you. I love you and miss you!
Arlene “Bonnie” Strauss
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!
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.
I want to thank you for the care I had during my stay at Medi Lodge. When they told me that they wanted to transfer me from OMH, I was concerned because of the care people I know had when the same facilities was TenderCare. I must say, after being at Medilodge my concerns were not justified.
The MediLodge staff and facilities were above my expectations. I could not have asked for better care from the Nurses and their supporting personnel. They were all friendly and very professional. You are very lucky to have food service and dining facilities that could compete with the better local dining facilities. Even though you are not connected directly with OMH, that is not a problem since you have a nice bus and driver that will take you to other medical facilities.
I hope that I will not need long term care facilities in the future but if I do, my first choice would be Medilodge.
Randolph M. Smith
"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 chose MediLodge of Gaylord because I had been there before and I really liked how they treated me. All of the staff members are extremely nice, caring and helpful. The Therapy department stands out to me the most. They really work with you and don’t rush you. They take your needs and limits into consideration and do not push you too hard past your limits.
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.
