Aging and People with Disabilities Division - DHS > Web site
The Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) program area provides services and supports to Oregonians over the age of 65 and to adults with physical disabilities. In 2014, about 30,183 seniors and people with disabilities received Medicaid long-term care services as a result of the work of APD and its partners. Oregon’s senior population is projected to grow from 502,000 to 950,000 by 2030. Currently, only about 4 percent of Oregon’s senior population uses Medicaid-funded long-term care services. In order to avoid a significant increase in demand on publicly-funded long-term care supports and services as the eligible population grows, it is critical to begin implementing strategies now that support healthy aging, meet the needs of an increasingly culturally diverse population and prevent or delay entry (as appropriate) into costly long-term care services.
