Your Personalized Care
You will have a dedicated team of professionals working together to support your needs so you can feel your best. They will get to know you and your family members, learn about your living situation, and help you meet your health and life goals with a customized care plan.
Your Interdisciplinary Care Team
One of the greatest benefits of PACE is the interdisciplinary care team. The team meets daily to manage and coordinate all your care among your various providers. Your Florida PACE Center physician is at the center of your care team, surrounded by all the specialists you might need – including, but not limited to:
- Orthopedic Specialists
- And more
Your Care Plan
You work with your care team to create a personalized care plan. Your family members can also be part of this process. Your care plan will be designed to meet your unique health needs, honor your culture and values, and support your interests and socialization goals. Every Florida PACE Center physician is experienced in caring for older adults and has a schedule that allows for ample time with every participant.
In addition to complete personalized health care (primary and specialty care) and social engagement, PACE benefits also can include:
- Dental and vision care
- Physical, speech, and occupational therapy
- Prescription and over the counter drugs, lab work, medical equipment
- Coordination of appointments
- Meals, nutrition counseling, and social services
- Open & accessible communication with you and your loved ones about health status and planning for future care needs
- Home care and light housekeeping
- Adult Day Care
As Your Needs Change
PACE benefits can change along with your needs. Whether that means fewer or more frequent doctor’s visits, different medications, additional social support, and more. We are here to serve you today, as well as help you in the future.
We have a 24/7 emergency line that you can call if you have a health problem at night or on the weekend. Our on-call nurse will answer the call and, depending on your condition, will arrange for you to see your Florida PACE Center care team the next day, come out to see you immediately, or recommend a visit to the Emergency Room.
