MediLodge of Leelanau is bright, roomy, and welcoming. MediLodge expects its new residents to feel overwhelmed, and is ready to answer any questions or concerns efficiently. I found a sense of warmth and familiarity for residents deliberately cultivated. An attentive, conscientious staff greets everyone pleasantly, and one's needs are attended as promptly as possible. My medical issues have been addressed promptly, such as sending a small sample of my blood to the lab to make sure its consistency is on target. I have a "fussy" appetite, but I find the meals are attractively presented and flavorful. No one is eager to engage in rehabilitative therapy, but residing at Medilodge of Leelanau makes the experience a home-like pleasure.

"I would like to thank the staff at Leelanau Health Center for the excellent care given to my mother, Gail Smith, this past summer. She was at Leelanau Health Center from July through September 2007. Mom needed skilled nursing care, which Leelanau Health Center in Suttons Bay, MI was able to supply. What impressed me, was not just the medical care and therapy, which were first rate. The gentle kindness, and willingness to be accommodating to my mother and family members during a very stressful time, was outstanding and appreciated. An example of this was the Social Worker taking a personal interest in making sure Mom was able to listen to the Harry Potter book on tape she was given. The nurses and aides were kind and professional. Mom was unable to move on her own, but the nurses and aides were patient and always willing to take the time to meet mom's needs. Similarly, the therapists were kind and encouraging coaches who refused to take "I can't" for an answer. Overall, it was the little things that made the stay successful for Mom. We are grateful that Mom had the opportunity to be in such a supporting atmosphere while she began her healing process."
My stay at MediLodge of Leelanau was very insightful. I was very pleased with all of the staff and how wonderful they all were. The PT and OT staff are outstanding!
Lena is the Life Enrichment Director of MediLodge of Leelanau. I think of her in a t-shirt that says, “not on my watch.” We are in over three months without anyone getting the virus. The outside world is not allowed in. All of the staff, nurses, CNA’s, doctors, housekeepers, and maintenance have come together to make this a safer place. I believe Lena is responsible for all of the compassion, and she cares so deeply for everyone here. She is my hero. The rehab department is wonderful. I am able to navigate much better than a few months ago. Because of their engaging personalities, I look forward to their visits. Thank you, Chad, Amanda, and Brittany.
I have been at MediLodge of Leelanau for 10 weeks. All of the staff have blown me away. They are all so confident, caring and friendly. Whoever picks the staff does a great job! The therapy team was great, caring and very helpful. Everyone was motivational, gave me confidence, and was very patient with me.
I have enjoyed my stay at MediLodge of Leelanau. The nurses, CNA's, and management have been very friendly and kind. The staff was always working hard to provide great care. The food was good with many other alternative options available, which made me happy. I would recommend this facility to anyone looking for long-term or short-term care.
I would recommend MediLodge of Leelanau to anyone that needs short term rehab. The facility was very clean and everyone was very friendly and helpful!
I so appreciate MediLodge of Leelanau for their care for me while I was here for rehab after surgery. The entire staff was so kind and helpful with anything that I needed. The food was very tasteful and delivered to my room. The therapists were very encouraging and helped me recover and get back some of my strength. To each person that helped make my stay wonderful, sending a prayer of thanks to God...and a note of thanks to you.
I had hoped to stay at home until the day I died but realized I needed skilled nursing care to help me regain my independence so I could return home safely. I was unsure at first because I always had the impression that people in nursing homes sat with nothing to do and had nothing to stimulate their mind and make there day pleasant. However, I found that I was wrong. Medilodge of Leelanau was more like home; so bright, clean, and many activities going on to please everyone. Families and friends were there to visit people often. The staff was all delightful and helpful. Something about the team showing interest in each person as an individual and treating them with respect, dignity, and providing genuine care as individuals made this stay a pleasant experience. I want to thank all of the staff at Medilodge of Leelanau for helping me to work hard and regain my independence. I am now on my way back home.
The last 4 months that I have been at MediLodge of Leelanau have been wonderful. The food is 5 star! The therapy team is phenomenal. I would definitely choose this facility again, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. Anyone that comes to MediLodge of Leelanau will be very well taken care of.
