Assisted living services can provide additional support when independent living becomes a challenge.
Missoula Aging Services (MAS) is here to help you or a loved one make the transition to assisted living.
Assisted Living in Missoula County
Assisted living homes or apartment buildings provide security and assistance to people with varying abilities.
Services provided may include:
- Daily supervision
- Help with personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing or medication management
- Meal preparation, laundry and housekeeping
- Monitoring of residents' health, well-being and medical needs
- Activities and entertainment
Assisted living homes vary greatly according to their state license. Some are family style homes in residential neighborhoods and can only provide care to those needing minimal assistance. Some provide specialized care for people living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers
Nursing homes help patients or residents with more advanced medical needs. This support can include skilled nursing services, rehabilitation and long-term care. These settings provide the highest level of healthcare and rooms may be private or semi-private.

Residents of assisted living and nursing homes have important rights that are guaranteed by law. If you or your loved one is not receiving appropriate care, contact your local Ombudsmen at Missoula Aging Services for help. Your Ombudsman can assist with issues related to health, safety and rights.
The Long-term Care Ombudsman program ensures residents’ voices are heard so they can continue to lead a good quality of life. For more information, call MAS at (406) 728-7682 to speak with your local ombudsman advocate.
