Morningstar of Billings
Billings, MT - Assisted Living, Memory Care
Community size: Extra Large (100+)
Morningstar of Billings is a handsome assisted living community in Billings, Montana. It is within fantastic Yellowstone County which is part of the Treasure State.
Men and women move to MorningStar’s Independent Living for a refreshing change of lifestyle including built-in companionship, predictable budgeting, activities and programming, and tasty meals they no longer need to cook. Under our roof, seniors enjoy stress-free living, a season that extends their independence and continues the adventure.
We handle all the maintenance, inside and out, and offer weekly housekeeping. Our Independent Living suites are equipped with their own washer/dryer, and full kitchens for the meals you feel like preparing on your own.
Our operating license does not permit us to extend care to those in our Independent Living neighborhood, however we can arrange for home health agencies to serve you, if the need arises.
The only difference in our senior years is that we may have to open ourselves to a little help once in a while. And from that level of honesty and transparency, we enter into a truer human experience, one in which we can receive—and give—love. It becomes a lovely exchange of mutual blessing.
MorningStar offers Assisted Living neighborhoods with various levels of support with the activities of daily living, each type of assistance determined after an assessment with our Wellness Director, working in agreement with the senior and extended family. In all cases, around-the-clock Care Managers are on site and at the ready to ensure your safety as they meet your expressed (and even unexpressed) needs.
Perhaps all this talk about assisted living communities is attended with feelings of guilt in you as the spouse or adult child of a senior in need. You wish you could open your own home to a beloved senior, but other commitments and constraints prevent you. Perhaps you are now the caregiver, and feel apprehensive about turning that role over to someone else, even though your selflessness is taking its toll on your own health and well being. Please know we are here not to replace you, but to walk beside you and be a loving presence in your family's life.—all in the hope of being an additional loving presence in. And if you allow MorningStar to assume the full-time role of Care Manager, the two of you are free to reestablish a more balanced relationship. Finally relax. Share a laugh. Enjoy each other.
Many of us joke of “senior moments” when we have glitches in our memory. However, a true diagnosis of brain disease, where memory loss and other cognitive functions deteriorate, is a heavy blow. It ushers seniors and their families onto an entirely different path: a winding and mysterious road. MorningStar is honored to offer memory care support by walking alongside the memory-impaired (and their families) on this unexpected journey.
We are pleased to also offer a Day Program in our community, an opportune setting in which to make new friends and reap the rewards of community life. Whether for a full day or half, seniors can enjoy meals, welcoming faces and our full calendar of Life Enrichment activities.
Additionally, we offer Short-term Stays (30 days or less) for those times when a senior's regular caregiver is needing a vacation. These respite stays are ideal for those recovering from surgery or otherwise convalescing. MorningStar offers the quiet quarters and attendance you need to fully recover. We also offer the companionship and community that is just as much a part of healing.
