Maine Aging Study Virtual Listening Session - Androscoggin, Franklin, and Oxford Counties
Maine wants to improve community services that support older adults and their family caregivers. If you are an adult who is 55 years or older or a family caregiver of an older adult, Maine’s Office of Aging and Disability Services wants to hear from you.
The Maine Aging Study being conducted by the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine (USM) on behalf of Maine’s Office of Aging and Disability Services will consist of a statewide survey for older adults, a survey for family caregivers, focus groups, key informant interviews, and listening sessions. Topics being addressed throughout this study include healthcare, food/nutrition, housing, transportation, receiving and giving care, safety, and socialization.
You can attend the Listening Session that best fits your schedule, even if that means attending one with residents of other counites.
Information collected will be used to inform the development of the next Maine State Plan on Aging that outlines goals, objectives, strategies, and performance measures for Older Americans Act funded aging services and programs.
