These programs literally provide a lifeline to Sublette County seniors and others who need help or cannot independently perform normal daily living tasks. Our goal is to ensure that those adults who need help or are at risk can live as independently and comfortably as possible. While our ability to meet every need can be constrained by our number of staff and resources, we always strive to do our best.
The Community Based In-Home Services, a program managed by the State of Wyoming's Aging Division. Please stop by our facility if you would like more information. We will be happy to explain all of the options we can make available to you in more detail. Below is a broad outline of what we do.
Department of Health, provides personal care and homemaking services to Sublette County seniors 60 years of age or over, their spouses, and some disabled individuals. However, only those at risk qualify, and any potentially eligible individual will undergo a needs assessment that will determine if they qualify, and it will also be used to develop her or his care plan.
That care plan may include homemaking services such as light housework, shopping, managing money, meal preparation, transportation, use of the telephone or computer, and correspondence.
The plan may also include personal care such as bathing, dressing, hair care, walking, and personal hygiene.
Other services may include temporary respite, and assistance with emergency electronic warning devices or "life lines."
Depending on family income and other factors, Rendezvous Pointe may charge for these services.
Our In-Home Services program has an Admission and Waiting List Policy and a Discharge Policy. They are available upon request and will be given to each potentially eligible client.
The Lending Closet
Beyond the In-Home services, Rendezvous Pointe offers a lending closet for anyone in temporary need whether due to an accident, surgery or other infirmity. Among other items, the Closet includes walkers, canes, crutches, shower and bath benches, pill boxes, toilet seat risers, wheel chairs, electric wheelchairs, and wheelchair ramps. You can call or stop by to see if the item you need is available.
Our other major assistance program is primarily a federally supported program managed by Wyoming's Aging Division. It provides support for those who give care to another family member, a member of a household, a neighbor or friend. The Caregiver Support Program assists caregivers of adults who are 60-years old and over, and grandparents who are 60-years old or older who care for children less than 18 years of age. The program offers caregivers respite or some time away from home, support groups, homemaking services and life lines. By reducing caregiver stress and fatigue, the quality of life for the care receiver is also enhanced.
Karissa Aldava, Rendezvous Pointe's Case Manager, is in charge of these programs. She can be reached at 307-367-2881.
