Everybody was kind and caring! Jess from MediLodge of Alpena was very friendly and helpful. Marci was very caring as well as all the CNA's on A Wing.
Dorothy and Bob Jones, family of former patient
"We are sending you this to thank you and your staff for the excellent care given to our mother, Helen Odom, during her stay in your facility. We cannot tell you how pleased we were with the care and compassion shown by everyone who worked with her."
The friendliness of the nursing staff was great, always right there. The therapy staff was great. I was very satisfied.
My doctor recommended that I tour MediLodge of Alpena a year before my knee surgery. I retired to Florida and returned specifically to have surgery with my Doctor. I feel pampered and completely cared for in a place that has all the comforts of home. Thank you for all of the wonderful care, pushing me through the pain, and helping me to resume a normal life.
Specific team members that stood out were:
Brandi was comforting at night.
Mary is a super helpful custodian.
Nurse Katie is fast & smiley!
Tiffany remembers everything.
Jason was my "can do" guy!
Mary has quiet concern for everyone.
JR treated and made me feel like a VIP.
Jesse was my personal cheerleader and an active listener.
The therapy department - everyone was outstanding!
There are so many compliments that I have for MediLodge. Gentle kindness is the rule of the day here! Even when facing angry and verbally abusive dementia residents, EVERYONE cares deeply, uses a quiet, gentle kindness, and abundant patience. This compassion is an example and lesson which deeply touched my heart. Life can be cruelly unfair, but the staff at MediLodge provides a soft place to land.
The reasons I chose this center is because my daughter is an OT here, and I knew I would get the quality therapy I needed. In the Therapy Dept, Nancy and Rachel stood out! They worked me very hard to help me reach my goal. Also the E Wing Nurses, Missy and team; they went out of their way to answer my many questions, and they were always pleasant with a smile. It was the best month I have ever spent on myself. I got stronger every day I rested and healed, I met a new friend and got encouragement along the way from those friends. I would come back if I ever needed to — a very pleasant stay. I had fun.
I chose MediLodge of Alpena after my knee replacement. I am very satisfied with my stay here. Everyone is so caring and understanding. Nancy, Ashley, and Eric were terrific and very helpful with my therapy. Thank you for everything!
Mary Lou Lentini
I chose MediLodge of Alpena because I had visited a friend here and was impressed by how clean and nice it looked. All the nurses and CENA’s were excellent! Cleaning ladies are so very pleasant and did a good job. All the volunteers were very special, always helpful and so very pleasant. Physical therapy was great and all so caring and so helpful.
Cathy and Carl Criscillis
Originally I chose it for Carl because of the location; the best decision we made! We received such great physical therapy and occupational therapy here. I try not to have favorites but Jess was both of ours. She was always ready to answer every question we had. There are so many wonderful people working here. This time it was like visiting family. If we had anything else to share about our experience at MediLodge of Alpena we'd say if you have to be away from home for therapy, this is a wonderful place to have it. Except for the pain in therapy, it's like a hotel, but with a lot of pampering. Our stay was the next best thing to home, a nice vacation for me.
Thank you all so much!
Jess Hogle really stood out, I love her personality. Always smiling! The gardens are beautiful, everyone should see them!

The nurses, techs, housekeeping all worked very well together and I had a great experience overall! The staff was kind and professional. They encouraged you to "do a little more stretching!" Music therapy was very great and uplifting for the residents and therapists. I went to the dining room about 1/3 of the time and was impressed by the staff and warm food! A fellowship is so important! All of the staff have compassion. I felt safe and cared for easily. Ice was my friend and available to me. The staff has quite a sense of humor too! Blessings to you all!
