I was told MediLodge of Ludington had the best therapy and they were right! It is also very clean, and all the staff is great! The therapy department really stood out, also Bill, Mary, and Catherine are very professional and kind. I credit them for my fast recovery. Thank you to all the staff in therapy! I would like to thank the nurses in the main office and the staff for their concern. I would also like to thank the aides, Mary, Stephan, Nick, Ashley, Austin, Brandy, Rebecca, Cindy, and Miranda.
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!
All of the departments were good. I give them all an A+.
I liked the way they treated us. Just like family. All the staff was very good.
My daughter in-law helped me find the facility and all the helpers were so nice!
At first it was hard but, with family support and me becoming stronger, things got better. The nurses, aids, and Therapy group were great!
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.

"When I came here I really was not in command of myself. I had trouble getting to the bathroom upstairs. I even had trouble dressing and caring for myself because I was getting weaker and weaker. I could not do the things as I did before. I had trouble and didn't want to admit I needed help. When I came here I didn't expect therapy here at Medilodge of Ludington. I was surprised to see such an athletic program. I was put in a series of therapies. Therapy helped me get around, do more for myself, and I even received a four-wheel walker. Now I am able manipulate myself. I have gotten some of my energy back. Therapy has given me a desire to be useful again."
I chose the facility for therapy and I’m very happy with the outcome. Special thanks to Tami, Bill, Hannah, and Cindy for all the care they showed me. The help was very kind.
I chose MediLodge of Ludington for myself because it was close to home. The staff at the south east station really stood out to me. Overall, the staff are kind and caring.
