Why look for assisted living in Wyoming?
Wyoming is sizable in land area, yet extraordinarily spread out as only 580,000+ people call the state their home. In fact, Wyoming is the least populated state of any in the U.S., continental or non-continental (note: Vermont is second). Wyoming gets much praise compared to a lot of other states from seniors that really want to be away from the noise and busy traffic of a large city.
Cheyenne, its biggest city and state capital, only has 62,000+ residents. Casper, the second biggest, is close behind at 60,000+. You simply will not find huge cities or high volumes of traffic in the Cowboy State.
Wyoming is also diverse with prairie land as well as high mountains. The northern half is especially gorgeous with Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. The lower half is prized for its open land where hunting and fishing are popular activities among retirees.

Types of Assisted Living Available in Wyoming
Wyoming ranks somewhere in the middle for assisted living affordability based on statistics. It is statistically about at the national average, with a median of $3,830 per month for assisted living.
Affordable assisted living units may drop as low as $2,260 per month, and luxury ones can go high as $6,430 per month. Fittingly, various types of rooms are priced differently as well as offer different services.
In most Wyoming assisted living facilities, the care is broken down into one of the following:
- Personal Care
- Directed Care
- Supervisory Care
Personal and directed care are far more comprehensive and demanding, which usually requires the resident getting assistance on some form of daily activities or tasks, perhaps a combination of many. Services may help with everything from moving around to waking up, grooming and hygiene, even help using the toiletries.
Meanwhile, supervisory care provides basic monitoring in an assisted living center in Wyoming and staff can manage medications and administering, which is welcomed by many seniors.
Paying for Assisted Living in Wyoming
The Assisted Living Facility Waiver was recently transformed into the Community Choices Waiver in Wyoming. The waiver previously funded room and board for assisted living residents.
Unfortunately, the news is that the new Community Choices Waiver will continue to help provide assistance for various types of personal care (some of which is provided in an assisted living facility), yet not the actual room and board.
