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.

Social services, the business office, and especially the PT and OT team stood out to me! All of your employees were really empathetic and supportive, even when I was getting frustrated.

"Jennie and I saw Margie regularly and our impression of the concern and care for Margie and the courtesy and extra effort extended to us was outstanding. The provision that Margie was allowed to keep her cat Misty as her constant companion was only one example of extraordinary sensitivity and compassion."
The friendliness of the nursing staff was great, always right there. The therapy staff was great. I was very satisfied.
Jess Hogle really stood out, I love her personality. Always smiling! The gardens are beautiful, everyone should see them!
The reason I chose this center is that it's close to home. If only all nurses in the world were like Jess, we'd all be so much better. She is amazing!

"I felt the need to write a letter of thanks to the staff of Alpena for the care my grandmother received while she was a resident there. Having to make the decision to put our grandmother in a nursing home was a difficult but necessary one. The fact that she was in the right place was evident each time I visited her. My husband and I have had the nursing home experience with three of our grandparents, and our experience at Medilodge was the best by far. It was always clean there, always tidy and it was evident that the staff clearly cared for the people who lived there."
This facility is very clean. It has many friendly people and professional workers. It is a warm and caring place with wonderful people in every department. Jess Hogle is one of the best as she is always willing to help.

"I enjoy activities like bowling down the hallway. I used to be on a bowling league years ago. I had a strike my first try and was the overall winner!"
I chose MediLodge of Alpena because it was close to my home and had good ratings! The team is amazing--they all care. Anything I had a question about was explained to me. I am pleased with the choice I made.
