WHAT IS PACE?

The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) offers a variety of services, with many of them provided onsite at a PACE Center.

PACE is an alternative to nursing home care and – through an interdisciplinary care team (IDT) of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, therapists, van drivers, and aides – coordinates and provides preventive, primary, acute, and long-term care services, so older individuals can continue living in the community.

The interdisciplinary team collaborates with seniors and their families to create a comprehensive and coordinated personal care plan, make all necessary appointments, coordinate specialists, fill prescriptions, and provide transportation to and from PACE centers.

While at a PACE center, participants receive a hot meal, social interaction, and recreational activities, in addition to medical clinic check-ups, physical therapy, and/or rehabilitative therapy, as determined by the interdisciplinary team.

To qualify for participating in PACE program, an individual must:

Be 55 years of age or older

Live in a PACE service area

Be able to live safely in the community at the time of enrollment

Be certified by the state to need a nursing home level of care
