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.
On December 27th, 2019, my mother suffered a significant CVA on the right side of her brain while at home alone, leaving her with full left-sided deficits. She was at an in-patient rehab prior to coming to MediLodge of Gaylord. Although she made progress there, her significant improvement started at your facility.
The person in charge of intake, Della, worked very hard at getting her into MediLodge of Gaylord and kept our family updated on the status of her intake. When she arrived, she had little to no movement on her left arm, and on the day of her discharge (2/22/19), she was able to play cards, hold things with her left hand, and walk with assistance. More importantly, she has hope that she will lead an independent life again. Anyone who has ever had their independence removed from them goes through depression and a period where they wonder if their life will ever again be the same. Dealing with this frustration and keeping a positive attitude is not easy.
The staff at your MediLodge of Gaylord encouraged a positive attitude and made her feel comfortable. Every day that I visited, I would hear wonderful stories about the staff that was making an impact on her life at MediLodge. I would hear about how Ashley, her physical therapist had worked her so hard in therapy that she could barely move, but how much fun she was and how much more fun she made therapy. I heard how her CNA, Nicole, was always helping her with the little things like getting dressed and using the restroom with dignity and other daily things. Your nursing program made sure that she was taking her daily medication on-time and was always evaluating the need for more and/or less.
The weekly care meetings that family was included in were very well done, where my mother was asked what was working and what was not. She was asked if there was anything that MediLodge of Gaylord could do to make things better for her. She enjoyed the daily activities that aided her physical therapy, like the balloon game and bingo! I firmly believe that the environment created by staff and residents alike contributed greatly to her recovery and forward progress.
Although the road to complete recovery will be long, I believe that your facility and staff have laid a stable and firm path to build on and our family is very thankful that she [my mother] was at this facility. From the entire family of Diana Salyers, we thank all of you for creating a safe and nurturing environment that has allowed her to go home. Your staff should all be very proud!
Sincerely, Pete Nicholson and the rest of Diana Salyers family!
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.
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!
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!
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 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 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.
Joyce Goodwill, patient
"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."
