PACE

The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly is a model of care centered around the belief that the well-being of seniors with chronic care needs, and their families, are better served in their own communities whenever possible.

LIVING AT HOME: Your Goal, Our Priority

Getting older is hard enough. Yet for those living with multiple long-term illnesses, it can be overwhelming. Where can you turn for support? PACE has provided specialized care for older adults for more than 40 years across the nation. Teams of dedicated staff work closely with you to create a personalized care plan you are comfortable and confident in. Our goal is to provide helpful tools and resources you may need to remain safe and well while living in the community.

PACE Program

Ascension Living PACE is a member of the National PACE Association.  The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) provides medical and support services to keep older adults safe in the community.  To qualify for PACE, a person must be age 55 or better and live in a PACE service area.  The Care Team assesses each person to determine if they are eligible in meeting the state’s certification for “nursing home level of care” criteria and if they can live safely in their home with PACE support and services.
