Community Services for Seniors and People with Disabilities
The mission of the Community Services Bureau is to address the needs of Medicaid eligible Montanans who require assistance and support in meeting their on-going health needs by developing, managing, funding, and ensuring quality in home-based services that foster independence and dignity, contain costs, and provide options to consumers.
A wide range of community-based long term care services have been developed. They are designed to keep people independent and living in their communities for as long as possible.
Many individuals in need of long term care services choose to remain in their own homes or select other community options to meet their needs. The Community Services Bureau administers a number of Medicaid-funded options that enable people who are aged or disabled and have limited income and resources to remain in their homes, rather than receive services in a hospital or nursing facility.
Community Services Bureau staff are located throughout the State. Staff monitor services, provide training for local staff, assist people in accessing services and implement policy.
