AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Four Maine communities are getting more than $1 million to develop ways to help people who are sick or elderly stay in their homes.

The goal of the grants from the Maine Health Access Foundation is to improve services so that people can receive care in their homes rather than having to go to a hospital or nursing home.

The four grant recipients are: The Aroostook Area Agency on Aging, the Bucksport Bay Healthy Communities Coalition, Charlotte White Center in Dover-Foxcroft and Washington Hancock County Action in Blue Hill.

Wendy Wolf, president and CEO of the foundation, said it’s critical for Maine to find ways to provide care and support at home because the state has the oldest population and one of the highest rates of disability in the country.
