When it is time to seek out healthcare assistance for yourself or an older adult, there are many options. Creating a plan can be a confusing and daunting task as you try to piece together services to meet all of your needs. For family caregivers, this can be especially stressful while also balancing the needs of work and family. Many caregivers find that care coordination for their parents can be a full-time job.
PACE, which stands for Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, is an option that removes the burden of care coordination for older adults and their families. PACE is an innovative model of healthcare providing wrap-around services and coordinated care all in one place, alleviating stress on the older adult and their family. PACE provides the flexibility needed to meet the health care needs of older adults to support them living successfully in the community.
A unique approach for every person
Every individual who receives care and services through PACE has a unique plan of care developed by an interdisciplinary team including providers, nurses, social workers, therapists, dietitians, homecare, transportation specialists, and more. The team works with each PACE participant to create an individualized plan that cares for the whole person, including their medical, social, and mental health needs.
PACE is more than a list of services; PACE is a complete solution
PACE offers a day center, where participants can receive medical care, rehab therapies, meals and socialization. The PACE Center serves as the central hub of all services, including scheduling and transportation to and from all appointments. PACE’s comprehensive services and care coordination can be an invaluable solution for the older adult and their caregivers who are balancing the needs of family and work.
