Senior Housing & Assisted Living
Missoula Aging Services offers many housing options for senior citizens in Missoula.
For seniors wishing to live independently in their own homes, the Home Maintenance and Safety Program sends a volunteer to senior citizens’ homes to provide routine maintenance and even a safety inspection.
Senior Residences provide apartments and housekeeping services but allow residents to live independently.
Retirement Communities offer residents the independence of their own home but also offer access to social activities and some basic care services.
For senior citizens that require more assistance, assisted living homes provide residents with assistance with activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, dressing and grooming in a communal setting.
Adult Foster Care provides the same assistance, but in a smaller family setting of up to four residents.
Nursing Homes are also an option for those who need skilled nursing care and substantial, long-term assistance.
Mountain Line provides bus transportation for the Missoula area. All buses feature wheelchair accessible lifts and ramps as well as kneeler systems to minimize stepping. Bus drivers are also available to assist those with disabilities with information.
Mountain Line also offers a para-transit system with curb-to-curb service for frail seniors and persons with disabilities. A senior van is also available for persons above 60 who have disabilities that don’t qualify for para-transit.
For transportation to medical and psychiatric appointments, Medicab provides non-emergency transportation and also accepts Medicaid reimbursement.
