icons-check-smallCaring Qualified Staff Providing a Total Health Approach

We believe that a quality life is one in which the whole person is supported – mental, social, physical, and emotional.

Residents at The Grandview will receive 24-hour care by highly qualified, licensed, and caring staff. All of our staff have been trained in a new approach to care – a resident-directed care approach.

A wellness nurse coordinator will conduct a health, social, and lifestyle assessment every quarter and develop a Personal Care Plan. These personal care plans help to ensure our residents are receiving the very best clinical care and that their social and lifestyle needs are being met as well. These personal plans offer tremendous peace of mind to the residents’ families helping them understand their healthcare needs and goals as well as their quality of life.

icons-check-smallA New Philosophy of Care – Residents are the Stars of the Show

Resident-Centered Care: All of the staff at The Grandview at Benefis have been trained in resident-centered care. That simply means that our residents and their concerns come first. You will see staff meeting with the residents to talk about their preferences in everything from activities, to menus, to personal schedules. Residents truly are the stars of the show.

Household Care Model: The staffs deliver resident-centered care in a home-like environment with a team solely dedicated to the residents in each Senior Care Cottage. The dining room, country kitchen, living room, and game room areas are centrally located in each Cottage. Residents are encouraged to spend time with friends and staff, outside of their rooms, doing the things they enjoy. The Cottages are cozy, warm, home-like and offer dignity, privacy, and choices that enable them to live life on their terms. This household model is a holistic approach that embraces the  whole person – not merely their condition.

icons-check-smallA Continuum of Care – Peace of Mind for the Future

The Grandview at Benefis has every level of care that seniors will need – assisted living at The Timbers; memory care assisted living at Reflections; and skilled nursing care in our Senior Care Cottages.

As the healthcare needs change for our seniors, they can move seamlessly within the community to another level of care. This creates peace of mind for you, a spouse, and your loved ones.

All of our households are connected by indoor walk-ways, so visiting a friend or a spouse is easy, no matter the weather.

icons-check-smallTranquility Room – A Cutting-Edge Multi-Sensory Environment

Reflections Memory Care Assisted Living has a state-of-the-art multi-sensory room for the mental, emotional, and physical support of our residents. We call it our Tranquility Room. This multi-sensory room uses lighting, sounds of the ocean and nature, scents, music, and touch to promote well-being in individuals suffering from memory loss. Specifically these rooms treat anxiety, stress, and behavioral issues that often accompany memory-related conditions.

Memory loss affects many aspects of an individual’s normal function – speech, recognition, logic, and self-care. Research has shown that this type of therapy provides a peaceful, soothing, and healing environment. It’s a tangible and positive way that our residents can connect with their environment and the impact it has on their quality of life is immeasurable.

icons-check-smallGardens and Grounds – Nature at Your Doorstep

Montanan’s love the outdoors. Almost everyone you talk to has enjoyed puttering in their yard, garden or flower beds at some point in their life.

At The Grandview, we know how important access to nature is for healing and relaxation as well as for peace of mind and pure enjoyment. We have designed a variety of natural spaces for our residents to delight in – both indoor and outdoor!  It’s just one more way in which The Grandview will feel like home.

Each Senior Care Cottage has an outdoor space filled with flowers, trees, shrubs, and cozy seating areas.

Reflections Memory Care has a secure sensory garden filled with beautiful plants, gazing balls, chimes, and aromatic plants.

The Timbers has a lovely outdoor garden with walking paths, flowers, and comfortable seating areas. Residents can also enjoy a lovely view from the second floor balcony.

Our Town Square has a 35-foot skylight and is filled with trees and plants. Even if it’s winter you have the sense that you’ve just enjoyed a sunny walk outdoors.

icons-check-smallDining and Nutrition – Delicious Chef-prepared Meals

Remember when the kitchen was the family’s favorite gathering place? Well, it still is!

Each household is designed around the country kitchen and dining room. Smelling a delicious meal being prepared is not only pleasant, it also has the therapeutic effect of increasing one’s appetite. Plus, that aroma acts like a magnet that draws residents out of their rooms and into a warm and social gathering.

Our menu reflects a variety of nutritious and delicious foods prepared by an executive chef. And of course, residents can always order from our ANYTIME menu so sleep late and have breakfast mid-morning if you like.
