Since PACE enrollees meet the frailty criteria to receive nursing home care but continue to live in their own homes, it is crucial to ensure their safety in that environment. PACE enrollees often find themselves alone in their home, and close monitoring helps PACE and caregivers prevent accidents or provide a quick response when needed.

NPA strategic partners offer PACE organizations a variety of services: telehealth, personal emergency response, fall detection and remote patient monitoring solutions.


Continuity of care is critical for older adults and patients with chronic or complex conditions. GrandPad, the first purpose-built tablet for seniors, is the smart, simple and safe way to connect PACE participants with family, friends and caregivers. PACE organizations use the GrandPad telehealth platform to digitally engage their participants to improve care and outcomes. GrandPads may be used for telehealth visits with the interdisciplinary team, as well as video-based social activities, including bingo, worship services and yoga classes.

In addition, GrandPad delivers freedom from the loneliness and isolation that often accompany aging. The GrandPad is a safe, simple and secure environment that allows the senior to connect with family and friends who can be invited, via a secure private link, to be a part of the senior’s private family network. Contacts then connect via a desktop computer through GrandPad Central or with an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet using the free GrandPad companion app.

With the free GrandPad companion app, contacts can do the following:

  • place video or phone calls directly to the GrandPad and
  • share and comment on pictures and videos.

The future of senior care can be enhanced through robust digital engagement. GrandPad offers a simple, safe and effective platform that allows PACE clinicians to interact with participants virtually while reducing loneliness and social isolation.
