The entire OT & PT team was outstanding. Considerable time was spent with Colleen, Michelle, Jessica, Dave, and Mary Catherine. The CNA's were also great. Patsy, Jen, Brandi, and Austin were very great. The therapy team worked with the patient and the family. Educating both the patient and the family facilitates the transition to home life. Their patience with my endless questions was greatly appreciated.
I think everyone tried really hard to look out for me. Everyone was friendly and did a good job. Thanks!
Bryce Griffes was admitted for rehabilitation after undergoing spinal surgery. Bryce loved maintaining his lawn, working in his flower beds and home improvement activities at his house. He even bought a brand new car! Bryce's difficulties started in October 2017 after he turned 79 and started having problems with tingling and numbness in his legs and feet. By the end of December, Bryce was declining and started using a walker and was having a hard time getting around and completing activities independently. Bryce was diagnosed with neuropathy. By April 2018 he had sustained numerous falls and was unable to care for himself, and in May 2018 he could not get out of bed. Bryce reached out for a second opinion and underwent surgery for his spinal cord compression on September 4, 2018.
The road to recovery was not easy for Bryce. Bryce was dependent for almost all tasks when he initially admitted to skilled services including gait, transfers, and ADLs. During his stay, Bryce received physical and occupational therapy services. Treatment included bed mobility, transfer, gait, and AOL training, balance and strengthening exercises including postural control to increase his overall level of functioning. Bryce exceeded his goals of increasing his independence! When he discharged from skilled therapy service he was independent at four-wheel walker level and went home with his family and dog Otis!
While no one wants to be away from home, it happens to many of us. I was open to both facilities who offer rehabilitation for a broken hip. MediLodge was very good place for me. All staff were upbeat, pleasant and very compassionate.
Michelle, Bill and Nate set up my personal comprehensive therapy plan with needed equipment. They stayed with me through it all and I leave very confident. Nikki, Head of Housekeeping found clothes to wear since mine were cut off at the hospital. They were clean and labeled. So kind. Beth checked on me each day, she was here and saw to it my needs were met. She left nothing undone…such a positive and “can do” woman.
Thank you MediLodge, all of you, for making my stay the best it could be.

"I have lived in this area for 40 years, but I was not aware of Ludington until recently, when I needed therapy for a fractured hip. There were many other people receiving therapy as well at Ludington. The therapy staff was fabulous. They worked me hard, but that was what I was there for. Before I went home, they want to my house to make sure I had everything I needed. I can't believe what they did for me at Ludington in a short time! I don't know if I could have progressed so quickly anywhere else. I am just so happy with everyone here. Not only the therapy staff, but the aids are outstanding! Everyone treated me special and with respect. I think the community should know what goes on at Ludington."
I liked the way they treated us. Just like family. All the staff was very good.
The therapy team were really good, they got me back on my feet.
At first it was hard but, with family support and me becoming stronger, things got better. The nurses, aids, and Therapy group were great!

I chose MediLodge of Ludington for myself. The reason why I chose this center is that I wanted to be closer to my daughter. Danielle, the resident advocate, and Amy, the social worker, were great help with any problem I had. They were respectful and kind, great people! Cindy B, CNA, was also very kind, helpful, and super driven.
Marisa, Tammy, Mary, Kathryn, Bill- they are the best therapy group around! All of them are respectful, kind, have a lot of compassion for the patients, and help us reach our goals.
Other nurses that were great to me were Dan, Mitch, and Billy Sue; they were kind, respectful, compassionate people, explained my medicine to me, and made me feel comfortable.
The food was good but cold some of the time. They were short on somethings on the menu. Housekeeping and maintenance workers were very nice!

"The first day I was taken to therapy, bruised and hurting all over, I wondered why I was there. However, it didn't take long to see what a dedicated group of therapists were at Ludington. At first, they checked on what I could do, and then the work began. It's amazing what they've accomplished through their hard work, praise and encouragement. I can walk with confidence again. May God bless them in their work."
