Dealing With Aging Wyomingites

medical

Wyoming’s demographics reflect an aging citizenry, and the state wonders how it will address their needs in the future.  Specifically, the 2010 census indicates that one in four people living in the state are between the ages of 46 and 64.  The State Department of Workforce Service’s research and planning section is now able to measure the number of persons working in more than 30 non-federal licensed health care jobs in Wyoming.  Then, by examining this information, along with existing resources, the state says they are able to examine the impacts that an aging population.  Specific concerns according to a statement by the department include small rural counties that have limited specialized care for older citizens, a shortage in the stat of several health care occupations that are critical to long-term care, and the inability of the state’s higher learning institutions to provide enough graduates to fill the average annual openings projected for many health care occupations.
