Wyoming Center on Aging

Our Mission: The mission of the Wyoming Center on Aging is to optimize the health and wellbeing of Wyoming's older residents and their caregivers through interagency partnerships, basic and applied research, community education, and clinical training and services.

Our Vision: The Wyoming Center on Aging is a visionary and innovative collaboration that proactively responds to the needs of older Wyoming residents while harnessing the strengths of our communities and honoring the legacy of our elders.

Wyoming is one of the most rapidly aging states, and by 2030 is projected to be the state with the highest concentration of individuals over 85. The benefits of a Center on Aging include connecting Wyoming residents, researchers, service providers, and educators, as well as fostering innovative aging research, training health care providers, disseminating evidence-based practices, and serving as a resource for older adults and their family caregivers.
