  1. aLong-term care
  2. bPoisson regression analysis, which was conducted to examine the association between the use of LTC service type for home-dwelling recipients and home death, adjusts for recipients’ age at time of death, gender, presence of spouse, underlying cause of death, year of death, degree of need for care, and secondary medical area dummy variables. Exponentiated coefficients were shown as incident rate ratios
  3. cThe types of LTC services were used by recipients at least once during/in the month of death. Another service type was not used
