Who we are
We have been providing quality in-home care for senior citizens since 1977 through our Senior Helping Hands program. Our Senior Helpin Hands Program is a home health agency, 501 (c) 3 and primarily serves isolated, low-income seniors in their homes. Our clients have lost some of their physical and/or mental abilities due to aging and/or illness. As a result, they are no longer able to perform all tasks that daily living requires, and they need help in order to be able to remain in their homes. Clients contribute to the cost of their own care based on income and ability to pay. Services are available in Carbon, Stillwater and Yellowstone Counties.
Partnering with Community Volunteers
We go the extra mile to ensure that our clients have all their needs met. We have amazing community partners that volunteer to help with yard work.
What we do & Why we are different
We provide in-home care services to senior citizens so they can remain living in their own homes for as long as possible. We provide nursing services, light homemaking/household chores, pet care services, phone & visiting volunteer companions, Representative Payee Services/money management & Case Management.
In June 2005, Senior Helping Hands, Prevention of Elder Abuse and Friends Volunteer Program merged to become Big Sky Senior Services. Our combined efforts offer comprehensive support services to help elders and developmentally disabled adults maintain their independence and quality of life by providing homemaking, case management or daily phone support.
Senior Helping Hands was started in 1977 to respond to the need for in-home services for elders in south central Montana. Today, Senior Helping Hands provides home care and homemaking services to over 100 seniors in Yellowstone, Stillwater and Carbon counties.
Prevention of Elder Abuse has pioneered innovative and comprehensive abuse prevention services since its founding in 1992. We were one of the first organization in the United States to conduct Gatekeeper training, which teaches community volunteers such as bank tellers, meter readers and mail carriers to spot and report possible elder abuse. Today, we provide information and assistance, abuse investigation, case management and financial payee services to elders and disabled adults throughout south central Montana.
