This study found that as people with dementia remained in the community over time, they were more likely to enter long-term care settings than people 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 people with dementia and their care partners.
