I want to take this opportunity to thank the entire staff at Medilodge of Portage for making my recovery and rehabilitation possible.
I arrived at the facility by way of an ambulance and confined to a stretcher back on March the 19th 2020. At the time my pain level was off the chart and my mood and disposition were quite unfavorable. I sincerely apologize to the nursing staff and CNA's then who had to deal with me in those early days of my stay.
Since that time my physical condition has been substantially and visibly improved and I have been cleared for discharge on May 21, 2020.
Over the past 2 months, I have not only made some dear friends but many of you have become like family members since I don't have any immediate family in the area. This unforeseen reality has gone a long way in helping with my recovery.
Your unrelenting patience in the administering of medications, meal preparation and delivery, custodial, laundry services, administrative services, and hot coffee is unsurpassed in the healthcare industry.
During this Coronavirus epidemic, all of you have demonstrated not only are you essential but quite invaluable. I truly hope that corporate levels realize that all of you have earned your pay, and still deserve a considerable increase in pay and benefits for your levels of professionalism.
James “Candy Man” Cline
It was comforting being at a place that was familiar to me. My wife was at MediLodge of Portage about 10 years ago and some of the same staff were still here. Through the years I have brought candy to MediLodge of Portage and the surrounding community. They call me the “Candy Man” but I just want to give to people who are in need of a friend or may be feeling lonely. It’s just nice to know that people here are so caring. I do appreciate everyone at MediLodge of Portage and want to thank you all for your help with me now and my wife then.
I first came to Medilodge of Portage at the beginning of October 2018. I couldn’t walk, couldn’t talk, and couldn’t eat on my own. I knew it was a long road to get back to being and feeling normal again. Five months later, I have reached my New Year’s Resolution with the help of the Medilodge Therapy team and staff. Today I’m going home, and not to just visit, but to experience my life in full once again. I want to thank everyone for their help and support. I’ll be back to visit as a VISITOR only.
The family of Anna Fowler
We would like to say thank you for the wonderful care you gave our mother. You will always be in our thoughts as a wonderful place that truly cares.
I arrived here at MediLodge of Portage on January 19th for some rehab before I transition back to home. Right away, I received a warm welcome. All the staff treated me very well during my stay here. I had good meals and wonderful Therapy. Enjoyed activities and met some great people like my roommate. In some small way, I hope I made a difference here as they did for me. I know I will miss everyone and be missed by them all as well but it’s time to go home. Hopefully, if I need to come back, it will just be for a visit.
Sherry Dellingu and Howard Johnson
All in all, we just want you all to know how grateful we are for all the special pampering that you gave Mom during her stay with you. All of you who work at Medilodge of Portage are truly special, and we will never understand how you do it all so efficiently!
Jan Reilly, RN
Thanks so much for all of the care you provided to my mom during her recent stay at your facility. I really appreciate your professionalism during the difficult moments. You can be proud of the work you do and I would definitely recommend you to anyone requiring a skilled facility.
Mary Basso, Short-Term Rehab
I went into the hospital and I could not walk, I chose Medilodge of Portage because it was close to my home. I enjoyed working with Stacy and Ashley, they were easy to work with and very understanding. Kelly the CNA was helpful in every way and very special. I learned a lot from being here and I will miss it.
I was extremely apprehensive at first about my stay at Medilodge of Portage as a resident. I feel like I have made some nice friends and the care has been perfect. The staff has been wonderful and I applaud the OT and PT department---they were really on their toes in my recovery. Nothing better to perk up a resident in the morning than a smiling face to help you get ready for the day. That plus a cup of coffee!
This was my third time here at MediLodge. I came here after surgery on my left hip. Obviously, I couldn’t stand up, let alone walk. Today I’m writing this letter with tears in my eyes. All of you ladies are to blame. You got me up and standing, balancing, and walking. Don’t forget “Live for love, adventure, and knowledge."
