Maine aging study seeks to improve community services

Maine wants to improve community services that support older adults and their family caregivers, according to a press release. 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.

On Monday, September 25, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., residents of Hancock, Piscataquis, Penobscot and Washington counties are encouraged to participate in a virtual listening session that will be conducted to gather input from community members across the state. Topics being addressed throughout this study include healthcare, food and nutrition, housing, transportation, receiving and giving care, safety and socialization.

Registration is required. Contact James Moorhead, Healthy Aging Services Manager, Office of Aging and Disability Services at 287-9200 or to register or for questions.

The study is being conducted by the Muskie School of Public Service on behalf of Maine’s Office of Aging and Disability Services.
