What is the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)?
PACE is a comprehensive healthcare program designed to help older adults who qualify for nursing home care but prefer to live in their own communities.
What PACE Can Do for You
The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is a federally funded program that provides a wide range of coordinated medical, social, and long-term care services to eligible individuals, with the goal of enabling them to live independently within the community. PACE participants receive a customized care plan that includes medical services like primary care, specialist visits, and prescription medications – as well as supportive services like social activities, meals, and transportation.
PACE operates on the belief that seniors with chronic care needs, and their families, are better served in the community rather than in an institutional setting whenever possible. By providing and coordinating all needed medical and supportive services through a comprehensive team of professionals (called an interdisciplinary care team), Florida PACE Centers helps older adults to maintain independence in their homes – avoiding or delaying permanent placement in long-term care settings.
Florida PACE Centers provide personalized attention, coordinated medical care, meals, activities, social engagement, and more. All in a trusted environment of life-enhancing care.
Our friendly and helpful drivers provide transportation to and from our locations, as well as to and from other medical appointments. No more worries about getting a ride from family or friends.
