Montana Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

Montana memory care communities provide a rich balance of quality rooms with ample recreational activities and leisure events. The rooms are fitted with a bed and other furnishings, while others may allow you to bring in small furniture (such as a dresser or desk) into the room. The bathrooms are oversized to accommodate handicap access and new residents are encouraged to bring in small belongings from home to personalize the room.

A regular schedule that is planned and organized by dementia trained caregivers keeps a loved one interacting and busy for a good portion of the day. Along with meals that are generally served at the same time each day, various activities are also sprinkled in to provide brain stimulation and light physical fitness. The mentality is that having a well-planned day and routine can contribute to better sleeping habits at night, especially for new residents transitioning into the facility.

Along with the indoor amenities, the top Alzheimer’s care homes in Montana also encourage residents to get outside during the warmer months and enjoy the fresh air. Many provide well maintained outdoor grounds with private patio seating areas as well as gardens and bird watching opportunities.

The day use area usually includes a flat screen TV along with various leisure activities like playing cards, board games, puzzles, and other arts and crafts. A few select units may even be pet-friendly for an additional charge, however, the breed restriction policies are usually fairly strict.

The buildings are generally very secure with 24/7 monitoring and checkups of residents to make sure they are doing well and haven’t slipped or fallen. The staff also handles all medication management and can make sure the correct dosages and meds are being administering at the correct times.
