  1. Table presents for each disability profile (Low limit. Low-level limitations, IADL (cogn.) IADL and low level of cognitive impairment, Func Functional limitations, Func., cogn. Functional & cognitive impairments, func., cogn., behav. Functional, cognitive & behavioural problems) the proportions of people utilizing the service. The p values in columns are derived from the chi-squared test comparing the disability profiles. The p values in lines are obtained from the chi-squared test comparing the different levels of DRS and/or CPS impairment. ***: p value ≤0.001; ** p value ≤0.01; NS No significant; −: minimum expected value < 5
