    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Casper

    Casper, a former oil boomtown located at the foot of Casper Mountain in central Wyoming, is nicknamed “The Oil City.” The city remains important in the energy industry due to its coal and uranium fields. Today it's home to nearly 57,500 people, and just over 13% of the town’s residents are senior citizens. 

    If Casper’s senior residents need help with activities of daily living, they can rely on the nine assisted living facilities located within city limits. In Casper and in all of the state, these facilities are regulated by Healthcare Licensing and Surveys, a division of the Wyoming Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Casper

    • Casper is ranked among the cleanest cities in the country by the American Lung Association. By one measure of air pollution, ozone, it’s tied for first place in the country, and by year-round particle pollution, Casper ranks fourth. For seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors, good air quality is very important. 
    • The Casper area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Summit Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Casper’s cost of living is 4.5% higher than the national average, though it’s slightly more affordable than the Wyoming average. Housing costs are the biggest factor, but above-average healthcare and grocery bills also contribute. However, seniors may appreciate the lower-than-average prices for transportation and utilities.
    • The Casper Area Transportation Coalition provides a fixed-route bus service in Natrona County. The bus operates from Monday to Saturday, and seniors qualify for reduced fares. Route deviations of up to two blocks can be arranged in advance.
    • In Wyoming, 92% of communities have a lower crime rate than Casper. Residents have an above-average chance of becoming a victim of burglary or other property crimes. However, the risk of becoming a victim of violent crime is one in 635, which is very low, so seniors may feel safe here.
    • With an average of 70 inches of snow falling annually, the city gets two-and-a-half times more snow than the U.S. average. Seniors who enjoy snowshoeing and cross country skiing may appreciate this wintry weather. With summer highs in the 80s, there is also plenty of opportunity for golf and other summer pursuits in Casper.
