I chose MediLodge of Tawas City for myself. I have heard good things out in the community about your center. Shannon (CNA) makes people feel comfortable he makes me laugh. Cheryl LPN (nurse) is always friendly and compassionate. The staff is great and very kind. My advice to everyone is to take everything one day at a time.

I chose MediLodge of Tawas City due to my acute COPD distress and for strengthening. When I got here, I could hardly walk or do anything without being completely out of breath even when using my oxygen (which is 24/7). Now, I can walk over 200 feet and do all the exercises they ask me to do. Your therapy department is excellent, and everyone here has been very sweet and pleasant to be around. All of the staff is very caring and compassionate. I never had anyone be unpleasant or mean to me. I have no complaints. Everyone from housekeeping, dietary, laundry, nurses, aides, and therapy was very pleasant and always willing to help when you need it. I hope not to come back, but if I have to go somewhere, I will choose to come back to MediLodge of Tawas City again. I will recommend your center to others. I really enjoyed my stay.

I chose Medilodge of Tawas City for my dad, Dixie Caudill, for a respite stay while I spent some time downstate. I can always count on Medilodge of Tawas City to allow me to bring dad in when I need to. Ida, Admissions & Marketing Director works very well with myself and our hospice agency. I can let them know a few days ahead of time that I would like to bring dad there, Medildoge is right on it willing to do whatever it takes to get him in. I can always count on Medilodge of Tawas City to take care of my dad, you all do good work. I know my dad is safe while I’m gone. I will always use Medilodge of Tawas City for our respite stays.
“I chose Medilodge of Tawas City for myself. My friend Mike is the D.O.N. there. I chose this center because it was close to where I live, and was a shorter distance for my wife to travel to see me. There are a few departments that stood out to me. First, there is nursing: Kendra and Leeann, the main two nurses that took care of me, both did a great job, were always polite, courteous, and very caring. Stephanie and April (CENAs from first shift) are both very caring people who take their job seriously and are polite as well. They always made sure I was comfortable, asking if I needed anything. Upper management came by on daily rounds, making sure everything was going well, asking how the prior evening went. The center has an excellent therapy department. Greg, Stacy, Emily, Lana kudos to you! You all show your passion for what you do. Shower aides Amber and Hannah also do a great job. Thank you for all you do. My overall stay was excellent.”

I chose MediLodge of Tawas City after having back surgery. My friend Nancy recommended that I choose to go here. Therapy was A #1! Pam and Tammy were both very attentive, helpful and useful. Jacob (CNA) was friendly and attentive.
I have been in a facility similar to this and MediLodge of Tawas City is infinitely better! The food here is wonderful. It tastes good, it’s always warm and they offer a wide variety to choose from. The nursing staff is just as wonderful as can be. They are very attentive. They listen to me and allow me to take part in my care. The activities here couldn’t be better! There are three wonderful activities ladies. Courtney was the first person to make me feel wanted in a very long time. She took the time to talk to me and encouraged me to stay positive. There are a wide variety of activities but the ones I enjoy most are Jeopardy, Euchre and Word Games. Although my eyesight is bad, they have made accommodations so that I could take part in art and crafts. At first, I was very anxious to leave here but now I feel like I fit in. I have made friends with many of the other residents. I don’t know how the staff here does it. They are so kind, patient and as nice as can be to all of us that live here. I hope to stay here as long as possible.
The reason my mother and girlfriend chose Medilodge of Tawas City for my therapy is because it’s close to where I live and heard good things about the facility. I was lost and messed up in a bad way. Your staff should be really proud of themselves! The staff here are gentle, considerate, compassionate & loving. I saw it daily throughout my stay. You (Ida) came by to see me daily to check on me, other people did this too. I felt loved here! You can do anything with GREAT people around. Greg from therapy is now a friend forever, he is a great guy. April (aide) always made me smile, we like to go back a fourth at each other making our day fun. She’s a good aide. Jenny and Brandy my speech therapists are awesome. You all have helped me to get the point going back home. Thank you, I will miss you all.
I chose MediLodge of Tawas City after having hip surgery. I know Ida, the marketer, who comes to the Hale Senior Center monthly to do our blood pressures. I also had a connection with Pam (therapy) since I have known her family for many years. I know they both really care. I don’t want to go home, and I would like to stay. I’ve had an overall good experience while staying here.
