We’ll let their testimonials speak for themselves. There are more where these come from, too. If you’re researching who can best provide for your recovery or rehabilitation, contact Medilodge of Howell to get additional feedback on the services we provide.
The excellent therapy I received made it possible for me to return home in just nine days! The Medilodge staff is top notch, from housekeeping, dietary, nursing and the therapy employees. I especially liked the delicious meals, giving you lots of choices and variety. I was very impressed at the overall cleanliness of the facility and very happy to have an on-site beauty shop. I enjoyed great conversations with all the people at Medilodge and plan to stay in touch with all my new friends!”
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 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 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.
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!
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.
I was here last year and it was a great stay! Everyone is great here, especially Shelena. Therapy has done wonders for me and admissions is always visiting. Great team and staff---I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
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!
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.

Dear Staff, Nurses & all other employees at MediLodge of Howell,
I just wanted to take time to thank you for going above and beyond the 'job description' in showing love, compassion, patience, and kindness. It takes a special gift to work with elderly people who are now facing a difficult [moment in their life]. Even those of you who are janitors and kitchen help, please know that your smiles, jokes, and sweet words made such a difference in my mom's life. Many of you she loved as her extended family. Thank you! May god abundantly bless and pour his love to you!
