PACE Programs Open in Michigan and New York

March 25, 2016

Two new Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®) began enrolling participants on March 1, bringing the total number of PACE programs nationwide to 118.

The new programs are Fallon Health Weinberg-PACE, in Amherst, NY, and Thome PACE in Jackson, MI. Thome PACE held an open house on Feb. 26.

“In addition to providing specialized geriatric care, our interdisciplinary team surrounds participants and their families with a wide array of supportive services that help seniors to continue living in the community,” said Charles Yates, MD, medical director at Fallon Health Weinberg-PACE.

“We welcome the community to visit our PACE Center,” said Courtney Fasolino, executive director of Fallon Health Weinberg. “It’s a warm, friendly and safe environment and the hub of all medical, social and personal care. We want people to experience first-hand how we help frail older adults maintain their independence so they can remain living in the comfort of their homes.”

In addition to its PACE program, Fallon Health Weinberg offers a Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan (SNP) for individuals 21 years and older who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid and a managed long-term care plan to eligible individuals 21 years and older in both Erie and Niagara counties.

“Fallon Health pioneered integrated approaches to health care with its PACE program, which we’ve offered in Massachusetts for the last 20 years,” said Richard Burke, president and CEO of Fallon Health. “In opening a PACE site in Erie County, we are bringing a much-needed resource to seniors and their families in the region. We understand that there’s no place like home, and we’re excited about the opportunity to help our participants stay there. Fallon Health Weinberg-PACE is just the kind of innovative, integrated program that we believe will define the future of senior health care.”
