Renovation Begins At The Springs At Butte

Built in 1999, with expansions in 2003 and 2008, The Springs at Butte has provided independent living, assisted living, and memory care to seniors in Butte, Montana for 18 years.

Acquired by The Springs Living in 2015, the major renovation at The Springs at Butte confirms a commitment to serving Butte’s senior population with a warm, comfortable environment that’s changing the way people experience senior living.

“By refreshing living spaces we’re delivering what our residents have asked for,” said Brenda Connelly, RN and director of operations of The Springs Living. “We believe that the upgrades will now match the quality of care and services they have been receiving all along and will reaffirm why they chose us as their home.”

The renovation includes the addition of a new gathering space called “Fancho’s” named after the grandfather of The Springs Living’s founder. “We wanted a place to connect our independent living cottages residents with the greater community, and Fancho’s will create that comfortable, relaxed, easy-living atmosphere,” explained Connelly. Signature food and beverage options will be served in Fancho’s to encourage that sense of camaraderie and lingering with friends or family.

Other notable renovation improvements will be a complete refresh to Footsteps® Memory Care, and the addition of a purposeful activity room where residents can enjoy group exercise classes, listen to guest speakers, watch movies, engage in community events and participate in a host of creative projects. We anticipate opportunities for continuing education as well. Fresh paint, new furniture, and upgraded common spaces throughout the community, round out the list of projects.

Local general contractor, Markovich Construction, is partnered with The Springs Living to run the remodel project. Construction is underway and scheduled for completion by summer 2017.
