In Wyoming approximately 74,000 family caregivers provided an estimated 62 million hours of care — worth a staggering $980 million — to their parents, spouses, partners, and friends in 2017, according to state data available in the latest report of AARP’s Valuing the Invaluable series. The complexity of family caregiving increases as medical and nursing tasks continue to enter the home, and family demographics change amidst an aging population.

To honor his integral work supporting Wyoming’s family caregivers, AARP names Wyoming Governor Matt Mead as 2018 “Capitol Caregiver,” a bipartisan group of 65 elected officials from 24 states. These leaders have advanced policies that support Wyoming’s family caregivers, who help their parents, spouses and other loved ones live independently at home and in the community—where they want to be.
A report released by AARP shows Wyoming’s state budget could benefit from continued and increased investment in Home and Community Based Services in an effort to keep its citizens aging in their homes, and out of nursing facilities, which are often paid for by the state.
