When I first got here after having my second below-knee amputation, I was nervous. I was also thinking about what was in store for me. Then when I woke up, I was really uneasy, so I stayed in bed all day. That next day, I was prepared for therapy, and I had also set a goal to be out of here by Christmas. Then even though I thought I was ready, m mom intervened, so I wasn’t going home until New Year Day. For me, (I thought) being a double amputee was going to be a piece of cake, but I was wrong. I didn't know there were 3 different kinds of therapy that I would have to do, and it was harder than the first amputation. Now that I'm getting to go home, I see why I had stayed. I give a big thank you to Kathy, Mo, Terry, and Jen for all of their support and encouragement.
Hello, my name is Catherine. I've had the pleasure of being cared for by the Howell Medilodge staff and physical therapy specialists. My journey began last year when I was admitted twice to the Howell medilodge. The first time was January 2019. I was in a bad accident involving multiple injuries. My foot was severely broken. With a lot of hard work and an excellent staff, I was able to go home in June 2019. Unfortunately, a severe and aggressive infection caused my foot to be amputated in December 2019. I knew that the Howell Medilodge could and would provide a skillful environment for physical therapy and healing. Getting ready for a prosthetic leg and foot has been challenging, and the daily physical therapy as been very difficult. All made possible by the kind supportive staff here at the Howell MedilodgeI would definitely recommend the Howell Medilodge to friends and family. I'm finally going home with confidence in my new prosthetic leg. Thank you, Team Howell, for all you have done and continue to do! Catherine
I chose MediLodge of Howell for my mother, Eugenia. I chose this center for their good reputation, cleanliness, and because it was closer to family and friends. From Wendy in Housekeeping to Daisy Hall, Darren, Dan, Paulette, Marie, Tika, Danielle, Katie, and Liz - They all take wonderful care of my mom and are wonderful!
I give Howell five stars! Especially, Ken he was the best he was very polite and respectful.
My mother had come to MediLodge of Howell and went home completely healed. The staff is phenomenal and compassionate. I wouldn't choose any other place! Natasha and Joey were exceptional in helping me get him [my brother Timothy] set up, I was so overwhelmed and they were kind and helpful. The staff is the best, and no other facility will ever compare to the level of care that my family has received here!
I came here because I was in a car accident and my leg was broken. I couldn't go home due to my injuries. The therapists helped me walk again and regain my strength. While I was here, I lost my balance and fell, but the therapist helped me increase my balance and safety so I could get back home independently with everything I needed.
I was living in a senior living in Anderson, Indiana, in late 2015. I had been sick later half of 2015. I also had two heart attacks in 2015. Starting in January 2016, I had several bouts of pneumonia. In February, I had to go to Saint Johns ER because of trouble breathing. The doctors at Saint johns determined I needed a tracheostomy because my oxygen levels were low. After the surgery, my heart stopped, and they had to do CPR. I was put on a ventilator to help me breathe. I was in the hospitals from February to June. My daughter Tracy had me transferred to Howell, Michigan, at MediLodge for Physical Therapy. I met two therapists Linsey and Austin. I could only walk halfway, but by the end, I was walking both ways several times.
I would do some weight lifting. I would ride there bicycle exercise machine. I walked with a walker, and Linsey and Austin would set goals how far to walk. I finally could walk on my own with a brace and cane. I can walk without the brace. I can walk short distances but long distances I have to use it. I went from assisted living to a senior community. I shop for myself and cook. I try to walk a mile and a half every day. I can do many things I couldn't when I was sick. Linsey and Austin had a lot of confidence I would walk but on my own from Medilodge. I feel that if it weren't for those two I would not have done so well.

The reason we chose MediLodge of Howell is because they helped us through the process from the first referral from the hospital and we felt welcomed from the get-go. Lisa, Kathy, Jennifers (Rose), Dan and Darren (Daisy), Tika, (CNA Aide), Leilini, Kate, Stacie, Joey, Natasha, Wendy, Maria (Housekeeping) were all team members that stood out during my aunt’s stay. Everyone went above and beyond with kindness and compassion for our aunt.
I came here after ankle joint replacement (surgery). I cannot still use my left foot as I am not allowed to weight on it for two more weeks. However, physical therapists showed me how to get on an out of a wheelchair without using my left foot and also how to use a knee roller properly.
I am going home and able to get around by myself! (The people who wor here are very helpful and pleasant!)
I chose MediLodge of Howell because I heard good reviews and a friend of mine works here. MediLodge of Howell is a good place to get the help that you need. The therapy and nursing team were wonderful during my stay.
