We have some new additions to our calendar this month including a Stitch Club and a Men’s Club.
Stitch Club is for anyone who enjoys or would like to learn knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, embroidery, or any other styles of basic hand sewing. In later months they will be making items for Neonatal Unit at Sparrow and the Capital Area Humane Society.
Men’s Club is where our gentleman in the facility can get together and make a variety of projects, including birdhouses and nut/bolt sculptures.
Some of the outings for this month include City Limits, Qdoba and W.J. Beal Botanical Gardens.

I was here because of a hip replacement surgery. All of your staff are helpful and very friendly. The Physical and Occupations team are the best I’ve ever seen – they are terrific. Thanks to the therapy team for all of your help. My rehabilitation time was minimal. It makes me feel good.
The reason I chose Medilodge of Okemos is because my sister was here and she had excellent care. Also, my mother was here as well and she too had excellent care. The therapy department is excellent I mean all of them. My aide Cathy and Isora are great and you could not ask for anything better!
I have had no problem waiting for help as soon as I turn on my call light they are in right away. I plan on having another surgery this year and will definitely be coming back to Medilodge.

Dear readers and future patients,
I’m compelled to write a short synopsis of my stay here at Mediloge.
I was living independently in my own apartment when I took very ill. I lost 45lbs and ended up at the U of M for surgery. For rehab, I chose MediLodge of Portage because my son and family lived close by. I’m not a gambling man but it turned out to be the best “Roll of the dice” I could have made.
Everyone I came into contact with was so concerned about my health. In 2 months, I was walking again. In 3 months, I had regained the 45lbs.
For me, it was a superior 5-star experience. So many professionals to say thank you to with much love. My motto is “live for love, adventure, and knowledge”. They did their job; mine was to make them laugh and keep it light-hearted. We all succeeded. They all know who they are!
They’ll never be forgotten,
Thomas A. Monroe
P.S. Ask them about the spoon toss game. I got pretty good at it.
"To Everyone at MediLodge,
Thank you for everything you've done for me. Your place is very nice to be, especially if you need the help to get better. You all were very nice and respectable towards me. I was happy to have picked your facility. Again, thank you for all of your time. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I chose MediLodge of Okemos because of its location so I could be close to family and friends while recovering. My therapy experience was excellent, thanks to the staff, who were all very encouraging! I’ve been pleased with this place.
I chose MediLodge of Okemos because my social worker at the hospital highly recommended it. The Nurses specifically Holly and CNA Katina and Alaina are wonderful. The therapy and activities staff are fabulous as well! I’ve made lifelong friends here. Had lots of laughs and made an amazing recovery. After 13 months in a wheelchair, I was finally walking again in just two weeks of being here!
I chose this center because the hospital said it was a good center. Therapy was great and very supportive! Everyone was very professional, and it takes special people to do this work!
I chose Medilodge of Okemos because I was here 2 years ago and loved it. The staff gives the best services that you can get and for that I love this place. There are so many staff members who are so nice to me and there is a beautiful harmony between patients and staff. The food is excellent and the scenery is so relaxed, I feel very comfortable in the rooms here. If I ever need rehab again I will be back.
Can’t thank therapy enough for everything they did for me! Quality of life is important to me, and therapy got me back to where I needed to be. Kudos to the Kitchen staff and all employees; especially to the nurses Jessica, Corey and Ethan, Kristine the unit manager and all the C.N.A’s! Staff is wonderful, and Medilodge of Okemos will always be my home away from home.
I chose Medilodge of Okemos because I was told that it was one of the best! All members of the therapy department were outstanding!
