Dementia Support Center

The purpose of the Wyoming Center on Aging, Dementia Support Center is to enhance the dementia-capability of our community through education, and provision of home and community-based services. We offer evidence-based interventions to meet the specific needs of people with dementia, and their family members. We also offer dementia screening for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who may have or be at risk of dementia. Additionally, the Dementia Support Center provides training programs for community members, first responders, health care and service providers to increase their ability to provide dementia-capable care.

Healthy U

Healthy U is a health promotion program designed to help anyone over the age of 18 play an active and productive role in their own health management. Anyone is welcome to participate; individuals who suffer from one or more chronic illnesses may find Healthy U particularly useful. Caregivers and friends of those who would benefit from health self-management also make great participants.
