Bax Axe, MI
"The family of Tom would like to thank you for the amazing care you provided while he was at your facility. You gave so much more than excellent healthcare. Everyone was compassionate, kind, caring and understanding not only to Tom but to us also.
Words cannot express how grateful we are that you took care of Tom at the end of his life."

"Our family would like to thank you for your talent and for the love and care that you put into Ken. Our time with him at the nursing home is a treasured one, as it allowed him to be clean and comfortable as he approached the end of his life. Our thanks for all you did to comfort him in his final days.
We felt blessed to find such a wonderful place when we needed it most."
MediLodge of Munising
I have been caregiver for my Mother, Geraldine for the last six years. I was in her home daily to cook, do laundry, pay her bills, make and take her to all her medical appointments, and anything else that was needed. Additionally I had meals on wheels for delivered for lunch, a weekly housekeeper, a visiting nurse and social worker.
When it became apparent that her dementia had reached the point where her living situation was no longer safe, I turned to MediLodge Munising in August of 2016. I chose their facility because mother had been a rehab patient twice in the past. Once following a heart attack and triple bypass in 2013, and the second time for a fractured pelvis in 2016. Most importantly, I chose MediLodge because Mother liked the facility and the care she received in the past.
I like the team approach used by MediLodge for the care of their residents. Nursing staff, Social Worker, Activities Director, Physical Therapy, office staff, housekeeping, maintenance, and kitchen staff all work together to give my mother the best of care.
I am a daily visitor to the facility and have never had any issue with mother's care or the
condition of the facility. Every staff member is caring, friendly, and professional. They all work together to keep mother healthy, both physically and mentally, and socially engaged. Her quality of life is actually better than if she were still living in her home.
I have recommended MediLodge to several of my friends for their loved ones, and will continue to do so. They are the best group of people to give mother the care she needs and deserves."

"Just a quick note to thank you and your caring, charming, cheerful, communicative, competent and confident staff.
You and your wonderful staff demonstrated an amazingly strong unity of purpose; putting patient needs and support first in all areas. Your entire team's involvement in supporting and showing caring patience with the patients, is outstanding and specifically what allowed me to rehabilitate in the relatively short time I was at your facility.
I am extremely grateful for the warm reception, the knowledgeable and competent care, the strong rehab team, the excellent food and the clean, considerate and comfortable surroundings. All of which made my rehabilitation possible, successful and pleasant.
Please convey my thanks and genuine gratitude to your staff and your residents for the kind and pleasant reception I received, for the rehabilitative and supportive interface I occurred with them on a daily basis, and for the fast friendships that developed in my short period with them.
Though I truly wanted and needed to get home as soon as possible; I felt a lump in my throat and a few tears in my eyes for the friends that I had to leave behind."
Laurels of Fulton
"We cannot thank you enough for the loving, kind care that you showed our Grandma Patsy on her last days. You didn’t just take care of her physical body—you took care of her soul. You listened to her stories, you told her your own. You comforted her and also made her laugh. She came to love so many of you. You let her feel a “part” of something again—and that is worth more than you can ever know. Thank you all."
North Woods Nursing Center
"My Father, Jack, recently completed a rehab stay at your North Woods facility last week. After visiting with him multiple times, I offer my sincere appreciation for his care and outcome. The multitude of reasons for that is the excellence of the staff in this well-run environment.
From the moment I entered the building, the greetings, smiles and bright layout to me, represented professionals who are dedicated to the resident's well-being. It must take aspecial type of person who can deal with the profound day in & out care of some of the very unfortunate.
I do wish to recognize Shayne, Menta, Mattie, Joe/Megan -PT, Mike, Nicole, Samantha, Mindie, Kelsie and a host of others, whose names, unfortunately I cannot recall, for their professional excellence.
Kudos to your well managed organization including great food service!"
Iron County Medical Facility
Crystal Falls, MI
"Thanks for taking such good care of my father, Russell, and for making his last year as rich and full and comfortable as it could be. I always knew someone was there to provide the help he needed, and that brought me and my family a lot of peace of mind.
In your dealings with him, you were unfailingly patient and kind, with a good mix of professionalism and familiarity. It's obvious that you care. Whenever I visited or talked with you on the phone, I felt that he was in good hands.
Please know how much respect the whole community has for the important work that you do."
Lincoln Haven Nursing and Rehabilitation Community
"Walt and I want to thank you for all the special care and love you gave (our mom) Blanche.
During her last couple weeks of life on Earth you gave her such a special gift as she was a part of your own families. Compassion – Love – Tenderness – Keeping her comfortable – Gentleness - you were all there for her all the way to the end. She had very little suffering which was the best gift of all. While we stayed with her the last 10 days or so, your hospitality you offered to us and all those special treats and food the kitchen sent us.
We can’t find enough words to thank you all. I personally was thanking God for all of you.
Thank you for taking care of all of us. God bless every one of you who touched our lives."
Bay Shores Senior Care and Rehab
Bay City, MI
"Thank you all so very much for the important part each one of you played in the end-of-life time for my mother. She relied upon you, as did her family, for the array of tasks you did for her. Whether doing her laundry, fixing her breakfast, helping her with day-to-day care, encouraging her through therapy, monitoring her condition, fixing her nails, brightening her day...the list goes on & on. And when the day came that she breathed her last, my brother & I were treated with kindness & compassion. I will always picture in my mind the little tableau Misty set up with my dad’s picture draped with my mom’s cross & the chair, awaiting my arrival, pulled up next to her bed.
Thank you for all that you have done for all of us. We are grateful."
Evergreen Senior Care and Rehab
Battle Creek, MI
"Evergreen. ... This place ...is AMAZING!! They treat my Mom like she is their Mom. I have seen interactions between the staff and other residents and they don't always know I am there watching and it is the same. They treat them all like family. They adjust their personalities to fit each resident individually. If one resident likes to have fun and be spunky they are just as fun and spunky then if they have a more serious or upset resident they adjust right away to fit that resident. They are often busy but they take the time. I adore everyone there from the nurses, the certified nursing assistants, the therapists, the kitchen staff, the housekeeping staff, the maintenance staff, the office staff, absolutely everyone. If they work there they act like they are there only for the residents and the paycheck is a bonus!
Thank you Evergreen Staff. You have brought my mom further than we thought she would ever be."
Schnepp Senior Care & Rehab Center
St. Louis, MI
"My grandfather is one of those seniors who insisted, despite recurrent falls in his home, he could live independently. As a result, this was very stressful for the family due to the concerns of maintaining patient safety and exceeding the abilities of his primary caregiver and we were finally able to convince him to admit to Schnepp for a course of short term rehab. From the day of admission, all of the facility staff have treated both my grandfather and father with respect and empathy and have ensured consistent and complete communications delivered in a manner understood by the non-medical professional.
Unfortunately, due to his advanced age and functional abilities, my grandfather was not able to return home, which was his greatest fear. Your staff allowed him to transition to long term care with dignity and grace and have welcomed and encouraged my father to continue to participate not only in family meetings but to integrate into the social structure of the facility. My father frequently reports how welcomed he is during meal times and recreational activities for the residents and he holds no hesitation in asking for information or clarification from any of your staff.
The ability for my father to remain so involved has been integral to the successful transition for my grandfather."
Wellbridge of Brighton
"A very special “thank you” to the employees and staff members of WellBridge of Brighton for the care and friendship given to Jerry, myself and our family during the past two years. We felt like we were part of one huge family which included many patients/guests and members of their families. We know there were some difficult days for Jerry, but there were many more good days.
We will be forever grateful that you were there to help us through the difficult times."
