Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities: Population and Service Use Trends in Maine

Abstract: 

This Chartbook is an update to the "Assessment of Maine's Long-term Care Needs Baseline Report: Demographics and Use of Long Term Care Services in Maine" report that was produced in 2007. The Chartbook provides historical and projected trends in the demographics of Maine's population. With the aging of Maine's population and its status as the "oldest" state in the nation, the use of long term services and supports surfaces as a key issue of public policy. We hope that the information contained in this report will be useful to state policymakers, legislators, providers, advocates and others with an interest in this subject. The use and expenditure data show historical trends while the population data includes projections. Where possible, national comparisons are provided to show Maine relative to other states.
