This report provides estimates of the number of older people in Ohio who received long-term care in 1999 and identifies: 1) Whether they are receiving formal care: a) in an institution; b) in the community; or c) receiving informal care from family, friends, and neighbors in the community. 2) The value of care provided in each setting; and 3) Who paid for the care? In addition, this report discusses whether Ohio can continue with its present policies, given an expected and unprecedented increase in the number of older people as well as disabled, older people in the next 50 years.
