ver the last 10 years, many major employers in the Oxford Hills region have closed, the manufactured housing industry largely disappeared, and unemployment and underemployment is high. The downturn is severely impacting families already at the low end of state income averages. Fully 12% of Oxford County residents live in poverty (US Census) and more than 60% of children receive free or reduced lunch (ME Dept. Education). Growing numbers of people are experiencing food insecurity. In response, we started our soup kitchen in 2008. Food insecurity is especially detrimental to recently discharged patients recovering from surgery, chronic disease or other impairments. Eric Coleman, professor of medicine and head of the Division of Health Care Policy and Research at the University of Colorado says, “the role of nutrition is likely entangled with chronic illness, frailty, [and] socioeconomic status.” It’s estimated that one-third of patients are malnourished upon hospital admission and another one-third will become so while hospitalized (Hospitals & Health Networks). After discharge, many patients experience fatigue, loss of appetite, and lack of mobility, resulting in nutritionally inadequate meals or no meals at all. Under-nutrition negatively affects patient outcomes, drives up overall health care costs and plays a role in increased hospital re-admission rates. Care transitions in rural areas rarely include nutrition management, although it is widely acknowledged as a significant unmet need.

Keep Maine’s Promise

The Supports Intensity Scale (SIS) is a relatively new method used to determine the anticipated level of support needed, then attaching a dollar amount to that level. Some individuals with developmental disabilities require trained support staff to be successful in their community and safe in their home. If DHHS continues to use the SIS, 82% of Mainers with developmental disabilities will see a significant reduction in services. Please share this video widely.
