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.

Check out the Dementia Support Center!

The purpose of the 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.  See how the DSC can help you!


Annual Wellness Visit

Have you seen your Primary Care provider for your Annual Wellness Visit?  The Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is a yearly appointment with your primary care provider (PCP) to create or update a personalized prevention plan. This plan may help prevent illness based on your current health and risk factors.  Watch these informational videos from WyCOA and partners!


Wyoming State Plan To Address  Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias.  August 2018

Success depends on developing a strong coalition of organizations, providers, caregivers, nursing home representatives, and practitioners around the state. With input and materials from surrounding states in the region, the Wyoming State Plan can inform the strategies designed to capitalize on our strengths and minimize our challenges.
