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.
Everyone at MediLodge of Leelanau was kind, professional and treated me with respect. They were very tentative to my call light when I needed help. The therapy team was great and we all joked around a lot, which made it fun.
Everyone here at MediLodge of Leelanau was so friendly and the food was absolutely delicious! I was very content with my stay here.
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 had a very good stay at MediLodge of Leelanau. Everyone was so nice and treated me very well. I came here to do some therapy to get better and stronger, and the therapy team did an excellent job helping me achieve my goal so I can go back home. I would definitely recommend this facility to others.
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.
I was recommended by my physical therapist in Petoskey to come to MediLodge of Leelanau for my rehab needs after my accident. I am very happy to report complete satisfaction with the whole system from admission to discharge. Nancy, Debra, and Cheryl, my nurses, and all of the CNAs, especially Liz and Barb, provided excellent care and cared about me! Showing that you cared was so important for me and my rehabilitation. I was very impressed with all the activities offered. Lena is very good at her job, and she is everywhere all the time. Also, the whole PT-OT department was excellent too. They all have really helped with my progress.
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.

After a very bad fall at our winter home in Mesa Arizona, and a ten-day hospital stay, I was eager to return to Leelanau country for medical care. We boarded the airplane in Phoenix on May 3rd, at 7:00 am for Michigan with my husband, grandson and oldest daughter. After 20 hours of travel time, we finally reached our destination at 3:00 am on May 4th with a wonderful greeting at the front entrance of MediLodge by familiar happy faces.
My care has been excellent, especially with all the major changes that are proceeding forward. I appreciate the healthcare facility and the employees of which many I know personally and encouraged education along life’s journey. During my 66 years in the nursing profession, working at Leelanau Memorial Hospital and Leelanau Clinic, it has been a great pleasure. My progress is remarkable and made possible at Medilodge by the persistent therapy department and wonderful nursing team. We must have changes in our daily life to see progress and be ready to help one another whenever possible. I look forward to going home and with Thanks to MediLodge of Leelanau for wonderful caring and compassionate employees.
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.
