About the Administrator
Hello. I am Barry Melchior and I am the Administrator of BeeHive Homes of Kalispell. I have had the honor of caring for our seniors since 1993. I was born in North Dakota and raised by my mother in Southern California. I worked my way through college by working as a bookkeeper at an Assisted Living Community. It was there that I discovered my compassion for seniors and my ability to positively affect their lives. After graduating with a degree in finance, I worked for a large senior living company in accounting, finance and eventually operations. I recently earned my Masters degree in Health Care Administration, which further ignited my desire to help seniors live better lives. I met my wife, Billie Jo, here in the Flathead Valley seven years ago. She has been a Registered Nurse taking care of our Valley’s seniors since 1997. I am so proud of her. I am truly blessed to have this opportunity to help Josh and Jessi “help as many seniors as they can”. I firmly believe that we can always “do better” for our seniors who deserve nothing less than the best care. Please stop by to see us anytime, as we would be happy to take you on a tour or answer any questions regarding our homes.
