What is PACE?

The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) model is centered on the belief that it is better for the well-being of seniors with chronic care needs and their families to be served in the community whenever possible. PACE serves seniors in need of nursing home care.  With the broad range and intense coordination of services provided by a PACE care team, these seniors are able to remain at home and in their communities.

PACE serves individuals who are age 55 or older, certified by their state to meet nursing home care, are able to live safely in the community at the time of enrollment and live in a PACE service area zip code.
