Objectives: This study explored care recipients' characteristics in relation to Taiwan's "Professional Services and Home-Based Reablement Under Long-Term Care 2.0" plan. Methods: Data were extracted from the care management information database of the long-term care system in Taiwan, and secondary data analysis was performed. Descriptive statistics and multiple logistic regression were used to analyze the factors affecting outcomes. Results: The study revealed the following two main results: (1) Factors significantly influencing care recipients' approval of the relevant professional services were residential area, type of A care management unit, a younger age, a higher level of education, a lower level of caregiver burden, having a foreign care worker, and a higher dependency level. (2) The characteristics of care recipients who were likely to discontinue their participation in home-based reablement plans were age, living with family caregivers, not having a foreign live-in caregiver, having mild to moderate disabilities (long-term care CMS level), and greater long-term care resource availability. Conclusions: Policy makers can use the care recipient characteristics identified in this study as a reference for developing an effective intervention model for the long-term care of care recipient groups in the community to meet the needs of both care recipients and their caregivers.
