Area II Agency on Aging

Welcome

We are a public, non-profit organization located in Roundup, Montana. One of ten Area Agencies serving Montana, Area II serves the needs and concerns of seniors and the disabled throughout an eleven-county area, including two reservations, in central Montana.

Area II grew out of the Older Americans Act of 1965, which developed federal, state, and local structures to administer programs to help the elderly maintain their health and independence in their homes and communities. In the State of Montana the Older American Act is administered by the Aging Services Bureau, Department of Public Health and Human Services. As local, grass-root resources, Area Agencies have advisory counsels who review and comment on all programs affecting seniors.

In partnership with the Veteran’s Administration, this program is designed to help keep Veterans in their own homes with the Veteran in control of the services needed.

A resource for seniors and the disabled. We answer questions, provide information about other agencies, and help with referrals.

An advocate who protects the rights of residents living in long-term-care facilities and personal-care homes.
