FIGHTING FOR YOU

Support at home and in your community
Many family caregivers in Wyoming have loved ones who rely on home and community services like home care, adult day care, and personal care, like help with bathing and dressing, and transportation. These critical programs can help relieve the heavy burden on Wyoming caregivers, but they’re not available to everyone. That’s why AARP Wyoming spent this year working with state legislators and the Governor to ensure theses critical programs received the funding they needed.
