I would like very much to take this opportunity to post a review of this place so that everyone can make a responsible decision NOT to place a loved one here.
I have a life long friend of 48 years who has been transferred to this facility since August 1, 2013. I have found this facility to be lacking in so many aspects. My friend is in the last stages of COPD and only has two teeth in which to eat meals. He has told me within the past week that he has not eaten in three days because they have served him meals of beef and chicken which he could not possibly chew or digest. He is shrinking in his weight and has become so weak all he does is sleep. I see his life ebbing away. This past Saturday, October 5, 2013, I was in to see him twice and both times he was asleep and I never saw any water or food on his table. So I went myself and bought him a hot bowl of soup at Whole Foods in Rochester Hills, and took it to him. When I arrived the second time, he still was asleep and very weak and pale looking. I was very disturbed. I tired to call the main number of the Medilodge and no answer. Finally a voicemail came on. I left a detailed message of how I was appalled at the lack of care given to my dear friend. That he told me he could not eat the food presented to him because none of it was chewable to a person with only 2 teeth. I told them I was going to call someone and find out what is going on in this facility, to which I did. My sister went in on Monday, October 7, 2013 to check on his condition and found his bed made and thought he had passed away. She inquired and found out he was taken to the hospital. They must have finally checked on him and found out he was past being in trouble. I have said all this to warm ANYONE considering bringing someone they love to this facility. RUN LIKE THE WIND AND NEVER COME THROUGH DOORS. This place is not a good place at all.
