What is PACE?
PACE (Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly) is a program for frail/elderly recipients who have been determined to need “nursing facility level of care” but wish to remain in their home and community as long as possible. Value of PACE: using a capitated payment system, PACE programs are able to provide the entire continuum of care and services to older adults with chronic care needs while maintaining their independence at home for as long as possible. Each PACE Program is comprised of an Interdisciplinary Team of health professionals working together to provide comprehensive care for PACE participants.
