History of Dementia Friendly Wyoming

History of Dementia Friendly Wyoming

Dementia Friendly Wyoming’s roots began through the development of Green House Living for Sheridan, the community showed its commitment to elders, creating a nurturing environment where elders continue to live with hope and social engagement.  This vision is now evolving to our neighborhoods and public places where 60 to 70% of those living with dementia still live at home.  The Center for Vital Community took this to the next step by hosting the Dementia Circles which invited citizens to participate in developing initiatives in moving forward. After many caring people’s amazing effort and time in writing a grant proposal that represented the initiatives, the The Hub, Sheridan's Senior Center became the recipient of a three-year federal grant to strengthen Sheridan’s community support for those living with dementia and their care partners.

Over the next three years and beyond, Sheridan will create innovative opportunities in community settings and organizations for those living with dementia and their care partners and then share it with communities across Wyoming.
