The reasons I chose Medilodge of Alpena was for therapy- very satisfied! The very dedicated staff at all levels are accomplishing their tasks and compensating for others.
Lillian & Roger Bartlett
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.
The friendliness of the nursing staff was great, always right there. The therapy staff was great. I was very satisfied.

"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!"
Everyone has a smile on their face and a genuine desire to help. Physical therapy was professional in attitude and professional goals attainment. Facility is spotless and well maintained. Food was gourmet quality.
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!
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.
My Mom had been here for 2 months and I was so truly satisfied with her core and my stay has been awesome! The full "family" atmosphere is so inviting. Everyone greets you in the halls with a smile and nod. The service is prompt and the foods tasty! What more could I want? I had a family emergency after only one week into my care. Every staff person went out of their way to make my stress and medical issues resolved! I felt so blessed!

"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."
