Benefits of PACE
PACE Participants Are Served by a comprehensive team of professionals. Upon enrollment in PACE, participants and their caregivers meet with an interdisciplinary team (IDT) that includes doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, dietitians, personal care aides, transportation drivers and others. Participant needs are assessed, and an individualized care plan is developed to respond to all of the participant’s needs – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. PACE participants receive regular, "High-Touch" care.
PACE participants receive comprehensive health and supportive services across a range of settings. At the PACE center they receive primary care, therapy, meals, recreation, socialization and personal care. In the home PACE offers skilled care, personal care supportive services, and supports such as ramps, grab bars, and other tools that facilitate participant safety. In the community PACE offers access to specialists and other providers.
