Wyoming Senior Service Providers
Below are some organizations providing services to older adults and their families in Wyoming. Each of these organizations can also answer your general questions and provide referrals for other services.
- Housing Placement – Housing placement organizations work with older adults and their family members to determine what type of care is needed, senior housing or in-home care. If senior housing is desired, then they recommend available locations. This service is most commonly provided at no cost to the older adult and family, as the senior housing locations have agreements with the housing locations they represent.
CarePatrol is a Senior Placement organization who helps families find safer care options including assisted living, independent living, memory care, in-home care and nursing homes. We personally meet with you and your family to help guide you through the daunting task of finding an appropriate senior living setting. Our services are FREE TO YOU, as we are paid by tens of thousands of quality pre-vetted providers across the nation.
- Assisted Living – Assisted living is for people who need help with daily care, but not as much help as a nursing home provides. Assisted living facilities range in size from as few as 25 residents to 120 or more. Typically, a few “levels of care” are offered, with residents paying more for higher levels of care. Assisted living residents usually live in their own apartments or rooms and share common areas. They have access to many services, including up to three meals a day; assistance with personal care; help with medications, housekeeping, and laundry; 24-hour supervision, security, and on-site staff; and social and recreational activities. Exact arrangements vary from state to state.
