Wyoming Memory Care Facilities

Wyoming is a state that should garner some interest among prospective families that may have to relocate a family member to a memory care facility. Wyoming has far cheaper monthly rates compared to most of the west, including the neighboring states of Colorado and Utah. Wyoming is known for providing terrific dementia care in a slower pace and style of living compared to many other states in the region.

Memory Care in Wyoming - Cheapest & Most Expensive Places

What does it cost to live in Wyoming based on the median average monthly cost? The state is close to the national average of $4,800 per month. For a good majority of memory care units, you can expect to pay under $5,000, or slightly higher.

Rock Springs, for example, is a little higher at $5,230 per month yet is considered one of the best cities in the state for memory care. Sweetwater County has the highest collection of Alzheimer's care homes in the state and averages $5,225 for a month of coverage.

The cities of Laramie, Cheyenne and Casper also feature a good selection of dementia care homes in Wyoming. However, none of these cities are exceptionally big, with Cheyenne, the state’s capital, only having 60,000+ residents.

When reaching out to prospective dementia care services it is important to start with the monthly rent. While the statistics posted for the different cities and counties in Wyoming are available, not all of them provide accurate information as some are all-inclusive and others charge separate fees for particular services. It is important to speak with a representative about exactly what services are being provided for the base fee, and if any additional charges are added.
