My Mother, Helen Heintz, Spent the last year of her life in the Memory Care Unit at Medilodge of Clare. To have to admit a parent in to a nursing home facility is not only a very hard choice- but a scary choice for the family.

The process of admitting her and help with the financial issues from Kelly Grossett were amazing!! Kelly walked me through every process and always had time for my questions or to assist me She was a true blessing in a very confusing process. I will always be grateful for her professional wisdom and help!!!

Of course as a family- your concerns jump to all the bad press that Nursing Homes have received and the horror stories you hear from other friends and family.

NOT the case with my Mom. My Mother was treated with the utmost care and dignity for the last year of her life. We found the facility to be clean, functional for her needs and happy to say- her needs always came first. The Nurses called to report any little issue that may have occured and kept me very informed on her condition. We sisters were there on almost a daily basis and never observed anything to make us question her care in any way.

Mom was well taken care of and you felt the affection and love from her caregivers for her. What a gift to us and mom. The staff was always more than willing to take the time to discuss Mom’s condition and answer any questions we had.

When Mom passed- several of her caregivers at Medilodge of Clare attended her funeral. Mom died in June- in December a Christmas ornament was left at my house in remembrance of her- a gift from Medilodge of Clare. They continued to warm my heart and remember Mom.

I have the highest regard and respect for all the staff and caregivers at this facility. I would recommend Medilodge of Clare to anyone who needed this end of life home and wonderful care.
