What to Consider About Memory Care in Casper

The Wyoming Department of Health regulates memory care facilities in Casper and the rest of the state and requires all facilities to obtain a state license before providing care to residents. To obtain licensing, facilities must submit to site inspections and follow rules related to staffing, staff training, care planning and the scope of services they provide.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Casper

 

  • On a 100-point total crime index, Casper rates 10, meaning it's statistically safer than 10% of U.S. communities. There are approximately 31 crime incidents per 1,000 residents in a year, about 94% of which are property-related. Fortunately, memory care communities promote a safe environment for residents through amenities such as fully enclosed gardens with walking paths that deter off-site wandering and professionally monitored surveillance systems.

 

  • The Casper region has moderately clean air, with the American Lung Association giving Natrona County a C for ozone and 24-hour particle pollution levels. Annually, residents experience about six high-ozone days and five high-particle days in which pollution levels may affect the health and comfort of seniors and those with heart or lung conditions. To keep residents comfortable, memory care communities offer indoor activities throughout the year, and many have air purification systems.

 

  • Summers in Casper bring clear skies, minimal rainfall and temperatures ranging from 78 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters are cool with daytime highs between 34 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit, and residents see about 20 inches of snowfall. While extreme temperatures may dip as low as -2 degrees Fahrenheit or go as high as 96 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer, memory care communities help residents stay comfortable with amenities such as unit-controlled thermostats.

 

  • Wyoming doesn’t have an income tax, meaning seniors in Casper don’t pay state taxes on any retirement income. Additionally, sales taxes are very low, and the state provides full exemptions for prescription medications and food.

 

  • Casper has a high score of 60 on the AARP Livability Index compared to the average city score of 48, making it one of the most favorable retirement destinations for seniors.
