What to Consider About Assisted Living in Laramie

In 2011, Money Magazine recognized Laramie, Wyoming, as one of the "Best Places to Retire if You Fear Higher Taxes." The city's population is about 32,000, with 3.7 percent aged 65 and older. Eight assisted living facilities serve seniors in the Laramie area, and they're regulated by the state through the Wyoming Department of Health. In Wyoming, assisted living facilities provide limited nursing care, boarding care and personal care but not habilitative care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Laramie
