Supported Independence

Living Alone with Dementia


The Dementia Support Center at the Wyoming Center on Aging offers a FREE support program for persons with dementia who need additional support.

  • Our Supported Independence program helps to maintain the health, safety, and independence of persons with dementia who may need additional support.

  • The program was created to serve people with dementia who are living alone in Albany County, Wyoming. However, we will do our best to serve any person with dementia in Wyoming who may benefit from these services.

  • The Supported Independence program includes safety assessment, companionship visits and phone calls, health education, and efforts to strengthen formal and informal supports of the person with dementia. We work with family caregivers as well as home and community-based services to increase people’s support network.

  • There are no age or income requirements to be eligible for this program. You may be self-referred or referred by a healthcare provider. A referral is not necessary to enroll in the program.

  • Supported Independence is available free of cost thanks to the Administration for Community Living.

If you are a person with dementia who may benefit from additional support; or you are a healthcare provider, caregiver, friend, or family member of someone with dementia who may benefit from our Supported Independence program, please contact WyCOA.
