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.

Geriatric Assessment Team - Casper

The Geriatric Assessment Team (GAT) is located at the University of Wyoming Family Medicine Residency in Casper. The team consists of a family medicine physician, family medicine resident, social worker/case manager, occupational therapist, physical therapist, and pharmacist. Patients are referred by community agencies or other health care providers, are seen by the doctor and a family medicine resident, and then their case is presented to the team. Each discipline listens to the case and makes recommendations based on their expertise. Examples of things the Geriatric Assessment Team can be helpful with include: weight loss, fall prevention, problems driving, progressing dementia with need for placement, and patients with multiple hospitalizations. Through team interventions the GAT addresses medical problems, evaluates the home setting, gets to know social support systems, and places patients/families in touch with necessary community resources. This team of healthcare professionals has expertise in geriatrics and is committed to their patients, regardless of their presenting problems.
