Charting a Pathway Forward: Redesigning and Realigning Supports and Services for Maine’s Older Adults

Charting a Pathway Forward profiles older people in Maine, including socio-demographic factors , health status and long term services and supports needs – presenting both current data and future projections, then outlines the long term services and support systems and programs currently in place and the funding streams used to pay for those services. The report identifies a range of opportunities and potential avenues for improving upon the current structure and also highlights the critical importance of state policy decisions in shaping the current and future outlook.

This report was prepared by the University of Southern Maine’s Muskie School of Public Service.
