In an early move to prevent cuts to services such as Meals on Wheels, AARP Kentucky is building grassroots support before the 2012 budget battle begins.

Lawmakers will begin in January to hammer out a biennial budget in a sluggish economy. Meanwhile, waiting lists for in-home services continue to grow. About 19,000 Kentuckians are on waiting lists for services from the Department of Aging and Independent Living, including nearly 6,500 in need of home-delivered meals and more than 3,200 in need of homemaker services.

People age 65 and older make up 13 percent of the state's population, and the percentage is growing. Most people want to live in their own homes for as long as possible but will need in-home services to do so.
