The physical therapy department is incredible. They helped me years ago after I broke my back, and they continue to help me now that my wife and I live here. The staff is great. Everyone has a positive attitude. Tootie and I love that family and friends visit so frequently. We also love the view from our room. We can see the mountains and the Yellowstone River.

When I needed physical therapy, I wasn’t too thrilled about having to stay in a nursing home. But Beartooth was a pleasant surprise. The staff members were wonderful. Whenever I had a special request, they were able to accommodate me. The physical therapists made me work hard, and really helped me get my strength back. Because of the excellent care I received, I got strong enough to go home again.

After years of caring for Mary on my own, I realized I needed some help. I chose Beartooth because they have an excellent Dementia Care unit where I knew she’d get exceptional care. I love that my family and I can visit her any time. When we leave, we feel comfortable that she’s in good hands. They keep her busy with activities she enjoys like music and church groups, and walking in the courtyard to see the gardens and flowers. The entire staff shows such great care and compassion. This is the best place for her at this time in her life.
