I have good care here, and like most everyone, I want to give Barb and Kasia a special thanks for making me feel comfortable and used to being here. I want to come back and visit every one of my friends. The food is excellent; also, thanks to the kitchen staff. I will miss you all, but I am looking forward to being back on my own. Keith is helping me; I hope it’s soon.
I was the primary caregiver for my wife from 2008 until her death in 2013. During those 5 years, we had been to all available nursing homes. There was no doubt in her mind which facility she liked the best especially when it came to her needs. MediLodge of Traverse City (formerly Tendercare) was much more tuned in to what her specific needs were. Whether it was the nursing care, the PT or OT or she simply felt more at ease with this facility, she was here until her final trip to Munson Hospital. So, when I became ill, there was no hesitation as to where I wanted to rehab. MediLodge of Traverse City was my first choice and I could not have made a better decision. I am leaving here with a new purpose for living. It has truly been a great experience!

I want to take a moment to thank you for the marvelous job you all are doing caring for our son. Rarely do I visit when I find him alone, it seems someone is always in his room, attending to his needs, or just looking after things.
My stay here was even better than last year. The staff works as one cohesive unit with the sole purpose of making sure the patient is the most important person here — my compliments.
The staff at MediLodge of Traverse City treat me with respect. I love them all! Holly and Beth have especially been great to me. The food here is wonderful too!
I got really good care the last time I was at MediLodge of Traverse City, that’s why I wanted to come back when I needed therapy again. You guys are great here! You have a great Activity Department, and I’ve gotten excellent care. I couldn’t think of a better place to be.

My husband has been at MediLodge of Traverse City for 13 months. His care has been stellar. The care is given with tenderness and love.
The activities are so diverse-field trips to seeing gardens and going on picnics. The Activity Director, Kasia, along with Barb and Georgiana (great supportive staff) have planned and carried on an Art Show (profitable) from art the residents have done. The residents were so proud of their accomplishments. A lot of the family members and guests to the Lodge attended.
The activity staff and transporter have taken residents on Fall color tours, Christmas light tours and also to see the orchards blossom in the Spring. They have brought residents to enjoy live music and a meal at the Senior Center (the Gathering Place) in Honor.
My husband wanted to first stay in bed. Kasia encouraged him to get up and help her. He now has helped put flower decorations (or posies as he calls them) on the dining room tables and picks them up. He takes that very seriously and that he’s needed.
I have been at the Lodge different times during the week. I have yet to see dirty hair or find food on resident clothes. Residents are clean and cared for. CENAs –Martha, Becky, and Tina care so lovingly for the residents that can’t feed themselves. Hugs and forehead kisses are a daily thing. All the staff are wonderful. I see how caring and wonderful they are.
Now, my husband is a very picky eater. He is constantly teasing the cooks, complaining about the food as he’s cleaning up his plate. The staff takes it in stride and hug him anyway. They are real treasures.
Then there is Travis-maintenance man/BBQer and many other things he does. He is so busy but always gets everything done and done well. Travis takes the time with residents that want to help as he’s working in their room. He is ever so kind.
Now, all that being said, I can’t leave the office staff out. Lisa, Amy, and Wanita-they are my go-to folks when I feel like my world is caving in because my husband isn’t here. They understand and listen to me and offer their supportive caring.
Again, let me reiterate this Medilodge of Traverse City is stellar and should be held up as a standard by which all health care facilities should be held! I’m so thankful I found this treasure!
My stay at MediLodge of Traverse City has been lovely! Everyone is so nice. The nurses make sure they are attentive to my pain and I appreciate that.
Everyone here is thoughtful, considerate and friendly! The care is wonderful. I’ve had visitors and they too say, “the difference is amazing at this facility.” My son checked out all the facilities at Munson when I was getting ready to leave and chose this one. I am so glad he did. It’s been a great experience. Therapy has been painful; but so helpful. I am very impressed with the therapy department. They have given me a list of things to do at home when I leave. The respiratory therapist Sweetlana is so sweet and conscientious about providing care. I really benefitted from her services. The entertainment here was so good too. I attended concerts and socials and had visits from the Life Enrichment staff. I was even able to get a haircut and manicure. What a treat! I would highly recommend Medilodge of Traverse City to others who need such service/rehabilitation.
This was a very positive experience. The nurses and CNAs were attentive and helpful. The therapists made the workouts fun. The food was tasty and plentiful. We especially loved Kasia – such a sweet person! The only suggestion is the larger name tags for the staff.
