Abstract

Prepared by research staff at the University of Southern Maine's Muskie School of Public Service for the Maine Office of Aging and Disability Services (the Office), this chartbook provides information on Maine adults who use long term services and supports. This is the first chartbook to reflect all the populations served by the Office: older adults; adults with physical disabilities; adults with intellectual disabilities/autism spectrum disorder or other related conditions; and adults with acquired brain injury. Long term services and supports are a vital lifeline for the thousands of Maine adults who need them, and they account for a significant portion of the state's Medicaid (MaineCare) budget.

Funding Organization or Grant

This chartbook was prepared under a contract between the Muskie School of Public Service, University of Southern Maine and the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Aging and Disability Services, DHHS Agreement #ADS-15-9312.
