Everything is great. Comfortable and like home. Trees and birds are nice to see as a birdwatcher.
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.

"If you need help after your hospital surgery, you can make that time productive and positive at Leelanau Health Center in Suttons Bay. They helped me feel better faster by their experience and professionalism for both of my Total Knee Replacements!"
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!
From the admission process and the initial tour with the administrator, everyone was very gracious with us and helped us understand what to expect and really helped ease our fears with this difficult decision. Throughout Tom's stay, as the challenges came, everyone was great at giving us the appropriate information to both to help guide us and help us not miss any opportunity to care for my husband. The care he received was exceptional. The C.N.A's and nurses were sincere and personal and everything they did for Tom and our family was above and beyond what we had expected. As Tom drew closer to passing, staff were considerate of noise, environment, appropriate in their approach, and very gentle and caring, making this difficult time into a beautiful moment. We went into the process with such an expectation of difficulty, but after Tom passed and we left, we found ourselves missing the staff and residents as we reflected on what we have come to see as a very unexpected blessing. The utmost respect and dignity was offered our family all the way up to the time Tom was prepared and taken out of the building by the funeral home. We were so moved by the whole experience.
We would highly recommend the Medilodge of Leelanau to anyone in a season of life who would require this type of care.
Thank you for the special care that I received while admitted to your facility. I have been a nurse for many years and was very impressed with the compassion and care provided by all of the staff. Shout out to Rick in PT, you will not be forgotten! Thanks for the workouts!
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 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."
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.
