Support our friends in the community by taking this survey on aging:
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. In addition to Maine’s State Plan on Aging, this input is also used to inform the planning and policy direction of the Governor’s Cabinet on Aging.
The Maine Aging Study being conducted by 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.
Information collected will be used to inform the development of the 2025-2028 Maine State Plan on Aging that outlines goals, objectives, strategies, and performance measures for Older Americans Act funded aging services and programs.
