Help with Daily Tasks
Many older adults are able to continue living independently in their own homes as they age. Occasional help can make life easier.
Missoula Aging Services offers services to help with daily living. Some help is available at no cost through friendly volunteers, while other services are available for an affordable sliding fee based on income.
Caring Companions are friendly Missoula Aging Services volunteers who visit weekly and can help with daily living tasks, such as shopping, errands, or going to social events.
How to sign up
Call Missoula Aging Services at (406) 728-7682 and let us know you’re interested.
We will follow up with a call to assess your needs and will work to match you with the right companion volunteer.
In-Home Support Services
Missoula Aging Services offers In-Home Support Services for an affordable sliding scale fee based on income. A dedicated Personal Care Attendant can come to your home on a regular schedule to provide respite, personal care and help with preparing meals. This service is available for residents 60 or older living within Missoula city limits.
We recommend calling MAS to ensure you have access to all the benefits and resources for which you qualify. One-on-one appointments are available with the Resource Center by calling (406)728-7682.
Missoula Aging Services has made the difficult decision to stop providing Homemaking Services at this time. There is a nationwide shortage of Personal Care Attendants, and we are experiencing that shortage in Missoula. Unfortunately, we have been unable to fill housekeeping positions. We understand that housekeeping is a major need in our community and are committed to finding a solution. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this ever-changing situation.
How to sign up
- Let us know you’re interested: Call Missoula Aging Services at (406) 728-7682.
- Meet to assess your needs: We will schedule a home visit with you to learn more about your needs. We will collect basic financial information that will help determine an affordable sliding fee, based on income.
- Placement: We will match you with a Personal Care Attendant (PCA) and work with you to schedule regular shifts when the PCA will provide in-home help. Even shifts as minimal as 2 hours every other week can be helpful.
