A Smile In His Heart
If you get a chance to meet Mike O., you will never leave without a pep in your step and a smile in your heart. Mike came to MediLodge of Port Huron after having heart surgery. Mike was impressed by the open arm welcome and by how clean the building was, especially the floors. “It is very important to me to see how the floors are kept, especially the carpet. Everyone does a great job here. Even the corners are nice and clean.” He also enjoyed how helpful and caring the staff were with him. They went out of their way to motivate him, joke around with him and do what they could to help make his stay pleasant and enjoyable. Therapy was able to really motivate him and help him learn how to shower, dress and take care of himself without hurting or injuring himself. They taught him how to exercise so he could get stronger and gain his confidence again. Mike also had lots to say about the food. He loved the roast turkey and mashed potatoes, breakfast was his favorite and he enjoyed “destroying” a good burger.
When it came time to prepare to go back home, Mike really appreciated the extra education about his medicines, and information to help him when he got home. His next doctor appointment was made for him and he was given instructions on whom to contact if he ran into any concerns. He was educated about coming back to MediLodge of Port Huron within 30 days if he found that he needed more care. He was assured that MediLodge would be following up with him to make sure that his home care services were stepping in to assist with the next phase of his recovery. All of these steps really helped to put Mike’s mind at ease as he continued to recover and get back to enjoying all his favorite activities again. Congratulations, Mike on your graduation from MediLodge of Port Huron therapy!
