Area IV Agency on Aging
Helping seniors, persons with disabilities, and their families make choices to preserve their independence and dignity.
Area IV Agency on Aging is part of a nationwide and state network that was created to fulfill the obligations of the 1965 Older Americans Act.
Area IV Agency on Aging programs address the needs and concerns of older Montanans and adults with disabilities in Broadwater, Gallatin, Jefferson, Lewis & Clark, Meagher, and Park Counties.
There are Agency on Aging offices and services available throughout Montana.
Every Area Agency on Aging is required to have an advisory council, comprised primarily of older persons, to review and comment on all programs affecting the elderly at the community level. Area IV’s Agency on Aging Advisory Council minutes are available upon request.
