Event Description

The Wyoming Department of Health, Aging Division would like to invite you to give your thoughts and feedback on the needs of older adults and their care partners in Wyoming. The Aging Division is holding 1 Community Listening Session per region, and we ask that you pick your nearest geographical region’s scheduled zoom call to participate. These sessions are free to join and are open to all members of the public: Simply copy the access details to your calendar and click on the hyperlink at 5:30pm MST on the correct date. We welcome comments from anyone, but we are specifically interested in the participation of informal caregivers and older adults. If you are unable to join us at the date and time scheduled for your region and you really want to be heard and have your say, please join us in another session of a similar geographical region or simply a more convenient date. Your participation will provide information that will be used to develop the Wyoming Four-Year State Plan on Aging for 2021-2025. Specifically, prior research has identified the need for people to continue living in their homes and communities as they age rather than transition to nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Our plan in conducting these community listening sessions is to understand the State’s capacity to support these goals and uphold necessary nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Your comments are very valuable to us, and we appreciate your time in assisting with this important project for Wyoming. Participation in one of these community listening sessions is voluntary and will not affect the delivery of services for your communities.
