Transportation Limited

As a precautionary measure due to the COVID-19 Virus, Fallon County Council on Aging has implemented the following changes to Fallon County’s Transportation System. We will not be transporting any passengers at this time. The passenger ban will remain in effect until further notice.
The transportation program’s telephone number, 978-9760, remains active and is being monitored for your needs. Although we can’t take YOU places, please don’t hesitate to call if you need US to pick up and deliver groceries, medications, or mail to your doorstep!

Home-delivered meals

The congregate meal site at Fallon Medical Complex is closed. Those community individuals over the age of 60 wishing to receive a “senior meal” may call 406-778-5425 prior to 10 a.m. and request a meal. The meal will be delivered by Fallon County Council on Aging’s transportation program along with the meals of other home-delivered meal clients.
Parkview Complex residents are also unable to access congregate meals via the normal route. For their convenience, a daily sign-up sheet has been placed on the kitchen door for residents to sign if they wish to receive the following day’s meal. Meals will be boxed and placed outside the kitchen door for those residents. Meals will be available for pick up from 11:15 to 11:30.
According to state guidelines, all meals will be considered home-delivered.
Questions may be directed to Carla Brown, Coordinator, Fallon County Council on Aging at 406-778-3595.

Information

Fallon County Council on Aging is in charge of many different programs of a benefit to those over the age of 60.

We provide transportation to those unable to drive to and from the home for medical, nutritional, social, recreational, shopping or other needs.

We provide a nutritious noon meal for those who visit the congregate meal site and for those who are unable to come, we can deliver the meal to their home.

We provide basic housekeeping services such as cleaning, washing dishes, doing laundry and helping with shopping.

We provide foot clinics, both in Baker and Plevna, where participants have the opportunity to receive basic foot care that is difficult for them to do themselves. We offer blood pressure clinics in Baker and Plevna. Kim Bryan, RN, generally mans all the clinics offered. She also delivers a wide variety of skilled nursing care to needy individuals.

We provide legal services, as prescribed in the Comprehensive Older American Act Amendments of 1987 to persons age 60 or older.

Also closely interwoven with Council on Aging are the Baker and Plevena senior centers.

The transportation program is actually considered public transportation and is open to all members of the community, regardless of age.
