What Is An Assisted Living Facility in Montana?

Assisted Living Facilities in Montana are “licensed only” facilities, therefore are not Certified under Federal Regulations. Unlike Long-Term Care facilities (Nursing Homes), Assisted Living Facilities are not required to hire Certified Nurses Aides.

The level of care provided in each facility is determined by the licensure endorsements and services each facility chooses to offer. The Assisted Living Resident Assessment, Resident Agreement , and Resident Service Plan provide the foundation and criteria for level of care and services. When considering moving into an Assisted Living Facility, please review the Resident Agreement carefully and work closely with the provider in the development of the Resident Service Plan, including Move-Out criteria, to provide clear expectations and greatest service satisfaction.
