What Can You Find at the Resource Center?

Looking for general information or assistance?

Missoula Aging Services’ Resource Specialists are available Monday through Friday to answer questions and to make referrals. Get started by calling us at 541-HELP (541-4357) or visit Montana-ADRC.org. This service is especially helpful to adult children who are trying to assist their parents either locally or from a distance. Resource Specialists are able to prepare free packets of information on issues such as long-term care, estate planning, and Medicare and Medicaid. Books, CDs and DVDs are also available for loan. The Resource Center has access to more than 550 referrals and provides information and assistance to seniors, people with disabilities, their caregivers and other interested parties. 

Older adults in the Seeley Lake area and Swan Valley now have access to Missoula Aging Services resources and assistance. The satellite office located at the Bison Bear Center, 3166 MT Hwy. 83 North in Seeley Lake, is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to serve seniors, their families and caregivers in person or by phone. The office is provided by the Seeley Lake Community Foundation. To make an appointment at the Seeley-Swan Resource Center, call (406) 541-7688.

Are You Concerned About an Older Adult?

The National Center on Elder Abuse has identified at least seven different types of elder/disabled adult abuse. These are physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, financial/material exploitation, neglect, physical neglect and self-neglect.  If someone is in immediate danger, call 911 for help. If the danger is not immediate, but you suspect that abuse has occurred or is occurring contact the Adult Protective Services (APS) agency in the state where the elder resides. In Missoula County, that number is (406) 329-1315. You can also call Missoula Aging Services at (406) 541-HELP. If you suspect nursing home abuse, call your Long Term Care Ombudsman.
