"I have just come home from five weeks at Medilodge in Howell. I want everyone to know about the great people who work there. The housekeepers, kitchen crew, physical therapists and nurses; and most of all, the ladies who personally take care all the sick and handicapped souls who don't really want to be there.
They never fail to smile and do their work cheerfully and efficiently.
They make it bearable. No, they make it pleasant."
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.
To the staff at MediLodge, thank you to all of you. Especially the occupational and physical therapy departments for all of your help. Thank you for the kindness you gave to me while I was staying at your facility.
After looking for a few months, I came back to MediLodge of Howell for a second tour to compare. We are so glad we made this choice. Natasha Cook was so patient interviewing us and very knowledgable while showing us the facility. The ladies at the front desk were also all smiles and happy to help. I encourage everyone to try MediLodge of Howell. Stop Looking!
My family chose MediLodge of Howell for my grandmother, Loretta Sparks, and I was so happy they did! Jody and Natasha are specific team members that stood out because they are so friendly and caring! I met them at the Pink Party and they stood out to me because of their hard work. My great grandmother was a patient at this facility and the staff are outstanding! They are so catering and accommodating and so nice! The staff at the Pink Party in Howell were super fun and friendly! I would recommend this center to anyone!
Coming to MediLodge was well worth it! I feel stronger and my attitude changed too. I am more willing to do things. When the home nurse was coming, she only came two times a week for 40 minutes. I felt like we weren't doing anything and I wasn't getting any better. When I first came here I could only take a few steps, now I can walk all the way down to the therapy gym!
Where do I begin? First I need to say thank you to Natasha Cook for all the hard work she did. If it wasn't for her, our father would still be in Detroit sleeping in a broken bed, and not being cared for! The day I called Natasha I was completely grief stricken. She showed me so much compassion! We as a family didn't know where to turn. His health care providers let him down, failed him! Natasha recognized the fact that he was just a little old man that needed someone to give him a chance. We as a family owe her so much gratitude! MediLodge has changed our lives. We can now enjoy our dad. The care, and compassion that our father has been given by the MediLodge staff has been life changing for him!!! I can't even imagine what would be going on in our lives today if it was for MediLodge giving him the opportunity to live there. MediLodge has given us as a family a chance to heal!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart
MediLodge of Howell was recommended by our Elder Law Attorney.
I have already conducted a significant study of several memory care facilities. My first meeting with the staff at MediLodge of Howell sinched my decision, based on numerous points; professionalism, sincerity, years in business, etc.
The Rose Hall team as a whole was phenomenal from day one, Nurse Cathy stood out. As we were introduced, through the weeks, to the other nurses... the same (Lisa, Kari, Jenny, Darrin) caregivers also stood out! Katie and Megan, and all. Even the reception personnel, activity staff, and maintenance staff took the time to care for my father and show kindness to the family.
God told her this was the place for me to have a 2nd chance. Karri is a sweet nurse and cares for the residents. Therapy was good. I'm moving out, look, and feel good! I came here unable to walk, underweight, and thought I was not going to make it.
I want to thank Natasha and the staff so much for everything you did for my Mom, Jil. Everyone went above and beyond. Especially Natasha taking my calls on the weekend. Everyone was there in our time of need.
You helped us so much when we needed someone to guide us. We didn't know what to do next with decisions in the medical field and you made everything go so smoothly. We will forever be thankful for YOU.
My Mom is doing much better after her two week stay.
