Retired Living and Senior Services

Missoula is a great place to retire. In addition to dynamic, comprehensive services designed to allow people to age gracefully and in peace, Missoula offers good weather, friendly folks, accessible outdoor recreation, affordable housing, public transportation, and top-notch medical facilities. Our community features vibrant arts and culture, and opportunities for further learning through the University of Montana.

A great part of what makes Missoula special is our strong culture of volunteerism. Through Senior Corps programs RSVP, Senior Companions and Foster Grandparents, Missoula Aging Services is the hub for older adults seeking involvement in their community.
