My mother, Joyce Brownlee suffers from late-stage dementia and Alzheimer.
My brother and I have cared for her around the clock for over 5 years and she now has progressed to the point that we cannot care for her ourselves anymore.
We have visited 14 facilities looking at overall cleanliness, staff to patient ratio, activities, and 24-hour nursing staff/doctor care etc.
Your [MediLodge of] Howell facility exceeded those requirements far ahead of any facilities we previously visited.
She had an emergency and needed rehab last week, decisions had to be made rapidly!
In our extreme difficulties and worries over the last week, I would like to recognize two employees at your Howell facility that were always happy to take my calls and answer my deepest concerns.
These employees also rapidly and painlessly accelerated our acceptance and admission process into the facility, reducing some of the anxieties associated with our mothers overall care.
So to that point, Joey Morganelli and Natasha Cook should be recognized for there professionalism and exceptional job!
Although we still have ongoing hurdles (Initial Care Conference) today, as we are concerned about some of her medications and their side effects, diet etc. I feel better that the nursing and doctor staff will excel as well as these other employees have.
August 2019, I entered rehabilitation at MediLodge. I couldn't walk. My body was weak. I couldn't sit up or stand up. I made my first step on the 2nd day with the therapists on the parallel bars. From that time on, I progressed to standing, walking with a walker, climbing stairs, and exercises machines. It has been a joy to have gotten my life back and look forward to going home in the near future. I thank God for such a joyful recovery at MediLodge. The staff + patients are a wonderful experience. Love the therapists; they're awesome!
I would recommend MediLodge of Howell.
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!
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!
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.
This is the first bone I've broken in 7 years. I don't remember falling, but I was told I tripped over the dog's bed, and I must have hit my head. When I got to the hospital, I didn't even know my name. It took about 3-4 days for me to start to remember things. I came to MediLodge from the hospital because they didn't want me to go straight home. I have several clients and family members who have stayed at MediLodge and recommended I come here for the excellent care. Since I've been at MediLodge, I've been working at getting stronger, so it will be easier to take care of myself when I get home. Everybody at MediLodge was friendly and kind. I would recommend MediLodge!
I chose Medilodge of Howell because of the location and the good staff. Dana in Physical Therapy really stood out. She was very thorough and I got really strong. My experience at Medilodge of Howell was very pleasant and the nurses were great.
I chose Medilodge of Howell for Joseph Williams because I was not satisfied with his previous facility. Dana, Austin, Lindsey and the rest of the staff really stood out. I specifically say Dana and Austin because they worked with Joseph the most and I could see the dedication and them trying very hard to accomplish out their set goals for Joseph.
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.
