Edgewood Billings Memory Care is a lovely assisted living community in Billings, Montana. It is within remarkable Yellowstone County which is part of the Treasure State.
The beautiful Magic City offers the perfect environment for your loved one to join us – and that’s no trick! Your loved one will enjoy a nostalgic, homelike feel but still have the convenience of Billings’ regionally-renowned medical services right at your fingertips. Edgewood Billings Memory Care has built a reputation as a premier provider of Memory Care services, and our dedicated, caring staff are specially trained to deliver specialized care planning and programming, increased security measures, modified dining options, and more hands-on support and care. We’re proactive in the fight to someday end Alzheimer’s and are progressive in care strategies and training, to ensure our compassionate staff can help each resident thrive.
Edgewood’s Memory Care residents live as independently as possible within a smaller, more comfortable environment. Our communities are designed to feel like any cozy home; there are spaces to gather, socialize and relax with family and friends. Our communities are designed to simulate the comfort, sounds, smells and feeling of home that ignite our residents’ long-term memories to bring them joy and contentment.
No detail is too small, and while we offer soothing room colors and décor throughout, residents are encouraged to bring their own special pictures, furniture and treasures to make their apartment home.
Our open floor plan allows residents to see every area of their home without having to open doors or walk long hallways. The open concept provides clarity and prompts them to interact with their surroundings and new friends, keeping them engaged, which reduces wandering, behaviors and depression while promoting physical and social well-being.
Alzheimer’s and memory loss affect everyone differently. Our staff-to-resident ratio allows us to provide personal attention and help residents maintain daily living skills. That’s coupled with ongoing training for our staff to understand the conditions and challenges associated with this illness.
Edgewood staff members reaffirm what residents do remember, to help improve self-esteem and reinforce positive experiences. Residents may also assist staff in activities such as meal preparation, cleanup, folding laundry and other tasks to help them enjoy the community feeling.
Short-Term Stays are exactly what they say they are: brief, overnight stays in a fully-furnished Assisted Living or Memory Care apartment. Stays can be as short as 24 hours or up to several months, and may be for a family member or yourself. If you are a caregiver to a family member, a short-term stay might be just the thing to remove worry and allow you to take that long overdue vacation. Maybe you are preparing for or recovering from surgery, or are considering a move to Assisted or Independent Living but are not ready to commit to a move. Either for a family member while you’re away, or yourself when you need a little extra help, a short-term stay might be right for you. Knowing that Edgewood has more than 20 years of expertise in operating Short-Term Stay programs means you can remove the worry and stay with us.
Adult Day Services is a specialized program serving those affected by Alzheimer’s disease, or other forms of dementia, who benefit from regularly interacting and engaging with other similarly affected individuals. Family caregivers often express feelings of guilt or of “giving up” on a loved one when they no longer can or want to care for their loved one entirely on their own. At Edgewood we see it differently—you’re not giving up, you’re asking for a hand; it just so happens that helping hand belongs to specially trained, experienced and knowledgeable professionals. Together as a team we can provide the best outcomes for your loved one, with the needed interactions and feelings of belonging, while you take care of yourself and your other responsibilities – whether that’s a work trip, running errands or enjoying a personal day of relaxation.
