Residents have contact with the community beyond their building. The Ruby ans Sapphire are connected by an easily-accessible courtyard full of beautiful plants, trees, grass, birds and a bunny or two. We have porch swings, abundant benches and table areas at which to gather while visiting with their "neighbors."
Our outdoor space gives a sense of freedom while keeping residents safe from wandering.
Our large yard and deck provides space for outdoor parties, BBQ's, games and activities.
We will be opening a new location for those who want the retirement units, Diamond Villa, assisted living units, the Sapphire and dementia care, the Ruby. These will be under one roof so couples and friends no longer have to be so separated and isolated. There will be packaged programs giving a guaranteed flat rate for each level of care. These package rates will be guaranteed for life once the program is activated.
The Diamond Villas will consist of one large bedroom, an open concept with a large handicapped accessible bathroom off the bedroom, wide galley kitchen, and a dining/living room all their own. Each Villa also has a reserved parking spot in front of their unit , a private entrance and their own covered front porch. The back door in the kitchen leads to a secured hallway leading to a laundry area and into the assisted living part of the building. This area will include the community dining area for everyone to utilize and an atrium for entertainment and socializing.
The monthly rate in the Villas include gas, electric, water, sewer, trash, concierge service, activities, meals and snacks. There will be weekly transportation provided to the Diamond Villa residents to a food store, local gyms, and pharmacies.
Diamond Villa residents have a "Personal Assistant" that arranges transportation schedules, 50 minutes of weekly housekeeping, and assists in decorating for holidays in the units. Storage areas are provided to Diamond Villa residents to store excess items. The Personal Assistant will also assist with unloading and putting the purchases away in each Villa.
Diamond Villa residents can choose to eat their own food or the food provided by MT Gems. They also choose to eat in the community dining room, the Atrium or in their own Villa.
Third party services in our building will include a bonded bookkeeper to assist with paying bills, balancing checkbooks and assisting with correspondence in the mail. a licensed beautician for hair and nails, an RN to do foot care, a medical provider, an incontinence supplier, pharmacy delivery service, and a chaperone for scheduled medical appointments.
The entire facility will have a front desk person from 10am-8pm daily.
The Sapphire Assisted Living units will have a private full handicapped accessible bathroom in the unit with a private living room. They will have an indoor "front porch" area for seating.
The Ruby Dementia Care Units will have either a private 1/2 or full handicapped accessible bathroom. Some units will also have a private living room. The Ruby unit will have a separate dining room available for those who need to be hand feed or monitored while eating.
This new MT Gems facility will be unlike any other place in Montana. Our goal is to have a community and not separate couples and friends because some might be healthier than the others.
