  • We need your help! Your input and insight is needed to help evaluate current and projected assisted living facility needs in the Lander community.

    The Lander Assisted Living Task Force is currently evaluating the community's need for additional assisted living and identifying new opportunities for providing services to our aging citizens. Fremont County has many high quality services for seniors, but there appears to be a need for an assisted living facility in Lander.  An assisted living facility is a group living arrangement providing help for residents with activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, using the bathroom, taking medicine, and getting to appointments as needed.  Assisted living facility residents often live in their own room or apartment within a building or group of buildings and have some or all of their meals together.  It is often seen as a bridge between independent living and nursing home care.

    To help evaluate current and projected needs in the community, the Assisted Living Task Force is seeking community input on the need and potential market for an assisted living facility.  Community Builders, Inc., (CBI), was hired to complete this Public Outreach process.
