Adult Resource Alliance

Big Sky Country Cares

The Adult Resource Alliance of Yellowstone County has been assisting seniors within Yellowstone County and their families and caregivers since 1975.   They provide a comprehensive range of services that promote the overall well-being of seniors and support them to remain independent and living in their own homes as long, as possible.

A few of their programs include:

Meals on Wheels Program provides a nutritionally balanced meal Monday through Friday, targeting older adults who are in the greatest social and physical need.   The program also provides a daily visit to the homebound senior to offer a little socialization, a personal touch and a visual check on their general well-being.

The Resource Center is a trusted place where seniors, adults with physical disabilities, their families and caregivers can find information on long-term support options, as well as assistance in accessing those options.  Assistance with Medicare, Part D Drug programs is also available. All information is handled confidentially.

(Currently assistance is available only by phone at 259-9666, Extension 205.)

Senior Lunch Program This service offers seniors a hot nutritious noon meal at one of 11 meal sites throughout the county. They also provide an opportunity for seniors to socialize, meet new friends, join in fun activities, and learn about issues important to their health and well-being. (Currently, all meals sites are closed. Please call 259-9666 for current information on re-opening.)

The Volunteer Program gives adults over the age of 60 the volunteer opportunities with this organization, as well as with other nonprofits throughout Yellowstone County.

Transportation is crucial to ensure access to essential services such as medical care and grocery shopping.  The availability of adequate transportation enables older adults to live independently in their communities and helps to prevent isolation. The Transportation Program can assist non-driving adults age 60 and above travel to and from appointments, social events, and shopping.
