Dementia Support Services

Our Mission: Enhance the dementia-capability of our community through education, and provision of home and community-based services.


  • Our services are available FREE of cost thanks to the Administration for Community Living.

  • Our primary goal is to serve people with dementia who are living in Albany County, Wyoming. However, we will do our best to serve any person in Wyoming who may benefit from these services.


Services Offered Include:

Care Support – Care consultants assist caregivers and/or people with dementia in identifying their support and service needs, connecting them to community-based formal and informal supports, and provide ongoing support. Available by phone, online, or in-person.

  • Encourage participation in fulfilling activities
  • Learn about available resources that reflect care partners’ values and preferences
  • Provide education about dementia and how to manage changes that lie ahead
