Institutions will cease to exist as we know them
Money from the Government will be limited
Impactful solutions will come from the for-profit and private-non-profit sectors
Folks don't want to live in institutions
Value of existing infrastructure will go up
We will continue to have affordable housing pressures
Folks will find non-institutional solutions
Serving rural populations will be challenging

Have a family conversation
Invest in a local business venture
Common Needs & Goals
Young families and Seniors have many of the same concerns and needs:
Affordable housing
Public transit
Little interest in maintenance
Social interaction with outside world
Freedom of wondering "what to do..."
Mobility of wheelchairs, unsure feet & strollers
...and Common Solutions:
Roommates
Childcare
Mutual Learning
Curbcuts
Handrailings
Automatic doors
Elevators
Maine Fiber Company
What kinds of infrastructure?
Existing Homes
Corner Stores
Shopping Centers
Main Street
Utilities
Urban Cores
Transit
Why would Institutions change?
Current public private mix
Private payers subsidize Maine Care payers
Maine Care won't keep up with demographics
Only more private payers will be added
Will lead to MORE money/resident
Major renovations and additions will be LESS accessible to Low-Income
Mission focused institutions will have trouble meeting their mission
How will we evaluate rural conditions?
We'll need to answer tough questions like:
What standards will individuals accept to stay in their homes?
What standards will society accept?
Do these need to be reconciled?
