Wyoming Life Resource Center

Wyoming Life Resource Center (WLRC) is a residential community with therapeutic and medical support services. We provide the least-restrictive, most appropriate and most integrated environment possible with informed choice.  This 24-hour care, 365 days a year Intermediate Care Facility for People with Intellectual Disability (ICF/IID) serves people with  intellectual disabilities, exceptionally difficult behaviors, and who are hard to place.  It is home to state of the art care, learning and job opportunities. A variety of therapeutic services are available including Physicians, RN’s, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, Behavior Specialists, Therapeutic Recreation Specialists, Dietitian, Chaplain and other specialty services. The Rothwell Training Center provides training for caregivers and healthcare professionals.

 

In 2016, the Wyoming State Legislature endorsed a new mission for WLRC.  The legislature also approved and funded a major capital construction project.  Currently, multiple older buildings are being demolished to clear land for new development.  New construction will consist of ten new client cottages, day programming buildings, clinic, recreation center with indoor pool and facilities building.  The estimated construction completion date is the fall of 2020.

 

Upon the construction completing, WLRC will open several cottages under a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) license.  These SNF cottages will service persons with organic brain syndrome who manifest exceptionally difficult behaviors, persons with high medical need and persons who are hard to place.

 

The new cottages will all open under the Green House model of care. The Core Values of the Green House Project are Real Home, Meaningful Life and Empowered Staff.
