Overcoming a stroke is not an easy task; however, MediLodge of Portage met the challenge and exceeded my expectations. The first thing I took away from MediLodge is perfectly said on their welcome bags: Recover, Rejuvenate, Revitalize, and Return home. Secondly, they had a saying there “teamwork makes the dream work.” Thirdly is I can do anything through Christ, which strengthens me. All three of these got me through what I considered a challenging and difficult time in my life. Even the residents would tell me, “Calvin, you are a victor, not a victim,” and I was able to overcome, grow, and return home with all of this. Thank you, MediLodge! Thank you, staff! And thank you, Therapy team, for always challenging me.
