When it comes to services that help people age in place, the Granite State ranks near the bottom of the pack.

About 95 percent of New Hampshire residents say they want to continue to live in their own homes, not move to a nursing home. But a recent scorecard shows New Hampshire ranks 47th among the states and the District of Columbia in the percentage of Medicaid long-term care dollars dedicated to home- and community-based services.

AARP is recruiting volunteer activists to help boost the ranking. Interested? Come to an event in Dover, Nov. 15; Concord, Nov. 28; or Manchester, Nov. 29.
