"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.
I chose MediLodge of Ludington 4 months ago and it was excellent. The entire Physical Therapy team was great and put me right back on my feet. The staff is very nice and the food is an added bonus.
My daughter in-law helped me find the facility and all the helpers were so nice!
I think everyone tried really hard to look out for me. Everyone was friendly and did a good job. Thanks!
I had a knee injury and, during my stay at MediLodge of Ludington, the staff was just perfect and very polite.
I chose MediLodge of Ludington for myself because it was closer to home, family and more support. Therapy worked with me and got me walking again, and there was great care at MediLodge of Ludington throughout.
The reason I chose this center was that I liked it! The staff is helpful and they helped me get better. Therapy stood out to me, they are good people to me and I couldn't have done it without them. I like Emily and the rest of the girls that helped me!

"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."
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!
