Highgate at Billings is a lovely assisted living community in Billings, Montana. It is within popular Yellowstone County which is part of the Treasure State.
Highgate at Billings offers Assisted Living in The Manor, and for those affected by Alzheimer’s & Dementia, Memory Care in the Cottage.
Whether it’s providing you with all the benefits of living at home without all the responsibilities to stimulating the mind, nourishing the body, feed the soul and enrich the day, Highgate will meet you where you are in your journey.
At some point, you or your loved one may need some extra help with the everyday tasks of living. Imagine how nice it would be to have your grocery shopping and cooking and laundry done for you. In Highgate’s Assisted Living community, The Manor, we take the burden of these chores off your shoulders.
The Manor is home to senior men and women, both singles and couples, who live in a variety of apartment styles and sizes. Each has a refreshment kitchenette, large bathroom with walk-in shower, and an emergency call system that offers two-way voice communication with our team members at any time of day or night.
Our services are personalized to meet individual needs, so that our residents can remain as independent as possible, for as long as possible, yet have the care they require at a moment’s notice. We adjust our schedule to theirs, whether it’s bringing food or drink up to a room if someone just doesn’t feel like coming down, assisting with medications no matter how complicated, or helping with a bath and getting dressed.

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia can be difficult, exhausting and emotionally draining. At some point, you may need an alternative to taking this on yourself. That’s when it’s time to call Highgate.
We provide safe, compassionate, round-the-clock care in The Cottage, our community designed for residents with memory loss.
It’s a cozy, secure environment with highly trained care partners whose mission is to understand the needs, desires and routines of each resident in order to personalize their care. Whether it’s nighttime wandering, confusion, repetitive questions, incontinence, or just wanting “to go home” – we understand – and have the expertise to gently handle these concerns. In fact, our care partners are certified in Teepa Snow’s internationally renowned Positive Approach to Care™ and Positive Physical Approach™ which improves chances of positive interactions and focuses on what’s left, not what’s lost. Team members also receive GEM™ training which uses precious gem colors that coincide with typical traits at various stages of dementia – a positive way to help us better understand and interact with someone who might seem beyond reach.
While most memory care facilities rely on traditional medical practices alone, Highgate offers a unique holistic approach to care which includes spa baths, massage, and our own blend of herbal teas to balance mood and promote health. We use our signature aromatherapy oils to lift spirits, stimulate appetite, and relax into sleep. We encourage exercise, healthy eating (including finger foods for those who find it more manageable), and hydration. We’re even involved in making sure the medications our Cottage residents take are right and necessary, advocating with families and physicians to provide a personalized program of care. We encourage everyone to stay as physically, mentally and socially active as possible. And we offer a variety of activities and outings to keep life stimulating.
