Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly
The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) model of care provides a comprehensive medical/social service delivery system using an interdisciplinary team approach in a PACE Center that provides and coordinates all needed preventive, primary, acute and long-term care services. Services are provided to older adults who would otherwise reside in nursing facilities. The PACE model affords eligible individuals to remain independent and in their homes for as long as possible. To be eligible, a person must be 55 years or older, reside in a PACE service area, be determined eligible at the nursing home level of care by the Department of Health Care Services, and be able to live safely in their home or community at the time of enrollment.
