In-Home Support Services
Caregiving doesn’t have to be a one person job. You can get help with daily household tasks and time to take care of your own needs.
Missoula Aging Services offers In-Home Support Services in order to provide affordable homemaking, respite and personal care assistance for caregivers. These services and other supports are also available for individuals for their own benefit (find out more at Help with Daily Living).
A dedicated Personal Care Attendant will come into the home on a regular schedule and help with cleaning, preparing meals, and personal hygiene. This provides caregivers a break from their caregiving duties and makes caregiving more manageable and less overwhelming.
This service is available for residents 60 or older living within Missoula city limits and the cost is based on a sliding-fee scale.
Please note, there is a nationwide shortage of Personal Care Attendants, and we are experiencing that shortage in Missoula. As a result, we have closed our waiting list for services and can not guarantee services will be available. We highly recommend that anyone needing in-home support services download the Home Care Provider List and contact these providers.
We are seeking compassionate individuals to be a part of the solution to the worker shortage. Are you interested in joining a great team? We welcome you to apply on the Careers page.
