This study found that as persons with dementia remained in the community over time, they were more likely to enter long-term care settings than persons without dementia, and they used home care services at an increasing rate. The use of other healthcare services appeared stable over time. This work will help health system planners to anticipate and plan for services to meet the needs of persons with dementia and their care partners.
