How To Get A Complete Excel List of Montana’s Assisted Living Facilities

I love it when I can direct people to a resource that is incredibly helpful and trustworthy.    Unfortunately, in the murky waters of the internet, those types of great resources are hard to identify.

For Montana, there are s number of great tools and resources available to the public for the state’s assisted living facilities, memory & Alzheimer’s care, residential senior care and more – if you know where to look.

First, I’d like to direct you to the State’s Quality Assurance Division website, which is sort of a ‘hub’ for the State of Montana’s health care services, including assisted living.

Their site looks like this:

Quality Assurance

There’s a lot of information here about licensure,  complaint procedures, as well as contact information for the department.

How do I get a list of assisted living facilities in Montana?

Within the Quality Assurance Division, there is a section for Regulated Facility Lists, and within this section, there is a link to Residential / Health Care Facilities.   

The link opens into an Excel document which can be saved, printed modified and sorted.

The Column’s include

  • Facility Type
  • License Number
  • Facility Name
  • Facility Phone Number
  • Facility Administrator’s Name
  • License Expire Date
  • Number of Beds
  • County
  • Address (including the city and zip) both physical and mailing

The list will look like this:

I did a ‘sort’ of the first column to see assisted living facilities in Montana. At this time, there are almost 300 statewide.   

I also sorted the facility size section, which is useful in that many seniors are drawn to either smaller, more residential-style facilities that offer a more home-like environment, whereas other seniors like the larger, more active, and often corporate-backed ‘community’ style assisted living.

This list is really great for those who like to write notes (not via computer) and for those times when you are touring a facility, you’ll have a list at your disposal to jot notes on, or to cross off those that are not a good match.

    Hi Folks,
    I am 82 years old and live in Helena, MT.
    In the past 2 years I have traveled over 70,000 miles across America on my motorcycle doing FREE programs at nursing homes and assisted living centers along the way. For a list of places I have performed in Montana recently visit my web page or email me.
    I would be happy to bring my banjo and guitar to your facility and perform my Music, Songs and Travel America stories.
    The programs are free and there are no charges of any kind.
    Could you pass this information along to nursing homes and assisted living centers you are in contact with?
    Thank you very much for your assistance in bringing music and fun to the residents of these facilities.
    Kindest Regards
    Del Lonnquist
