AARP: State ranks 8th for long-term care

A group says Wisconsin is ranked eighth in the country for meeting the long-term care needs of the elderly and disabled.

AARP spokeswoman Helen Marks Dicks says their survey focused on services that help people stay in their homes, instead of an assisted living facility or nursing home.

She says more than 524,000 people in the state are taking care of loved ones at home, and the value of that is about $5.8 billion.

Marks Dicks says they conduct the survey every several years, and the state's services have improved since the last one.
