Wyoming Considers Veterans Nursing Home

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) ā€” Wyoming is one of only two states without a state-funded nursing facility for veterans.

That could change after a legislative audit study in Cheyenne raised questions about of long-term care facilities for Wyoming vets.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (http://goo.gl/kuBx2 ) that the audit suggests that lawmakers consider building a state-funded nursing home for veterans.

Wyoming had a veteran population of 55,510 as of Sept. 30, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Of that amount, 39 percent are older than 65, and that percentage is expected to climb in the next couple of decades.

The 117-bed Veterans Home of Wyoming in Buffalo only offers assisted-living or domiciliary care. Veterans currently can use VA facilities in Sheridan or Cheyenne.
