  4. Elder Care
 - The Mississippi Care Planning Council, as with similar organizations in other states, aims to provide a one-stop list of care providers and advisers to help people care for the elderly people in their lives. On the council's website, advice and resources are available on subjects ranging from care planning to Medicaid to home maintenance.
  5. Mississippi Ranking
 - United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) ranked Mississippi worst out of 50 states and the District of Columbia in a 2014 national report. According to the state's scorecard, Mississippi has five large state facilities housing 1,441 people at a cost of $98,550 per person per year. The state did not report 2012 survey data in a nationwide quality assurance program, nor did it report how many people were on waiting lists, UCP said. The report also noted that the state was seeing declines in disabled people receiving help to stay in their own or family homes, or to support them in competitive employment
