The PACE Model of Care
The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) model of care is designed to help older adults remain in their home in the community for as long as possible. The PACE model provides both medical and social services and is a welcome alternative to nursing home care for many older adults. An interdisciplinary health care team implements a comprehensive and individualized care plan to address the chronic health needs of participants and provides assistance for family caregivers.
Members and Participants Talk About PACE
PACE is a special program that has the potential to greatly reduce the health inequity in our rural communities. This is how health care should work.Rob Williams, Sr.
The PACE program is excellent. Any time anyone needs help, they are there, and the staff is so friendly and caring. Oh, don't forget the food, so good. My counselor was also by my side during my grieving, and I am so grateful.Belinda Allen
