"I have lived in this area for 40 years, but I was not aware of Ludington until recently, when I needed therapy for a fractured hip. There were many other people receiving therapy as well at Ludington. The therapy staff was fabulous. They worked me hard, but that was what I was there for. Before I went home, they want to my house to make sure I had everything I needed. I can't believe what they did for me at Tendercare in a short time! I don't know if I could have progressed so quickly anywhere else. I am just so happy with everyone here. Not only the therapy staff, but the aids are outstanding! Everyone treated me special and with respect. I think the community should know what goes on at Ludington."

"The first day I was taken to therapy, bruised and hurting all over, I wondered why I was there. However, it didn't take long to see what a dedicated group of therapists were at Ludington. At first, they checked on what I could do, and then the work began. It's amazing what they've accomplished through their hard work, praise and encouragement. I can walk with confidence again. May God bless them in their work."

"When I came here I really was not in command of myself. I had trouble getting to the bathroom upstairs. I even had trouble dressing and caring for myself because I was getting weaker and weaker. I could not do the things as I did before. I had trouble and didn't want to admit I needed help. When I came here I didn't expect therapy here at Tendercare of Ludington. I was surprised to see such an athletic program. I was put in a series of therapies. Therapy helped me get around, do more for myself, and I even received a four-wheel walker. Now I am able manipulate myself. I have gotten some of my energy back. Therapy has given me a desire to be useful again."
