What can participants expect?
Participants can expect to receive a comprehensive approach to their health care. Our team works with each participant to achieve their goals while helping them remain as independent as possible.
How do people get to the day health center?
PACE programs provide transportation to the day health center. Transportation is a key part of the PACE benefit. Transportation is provided between the home and the day health center.
Do PACE participants attend the day health center every day?
No. On average, PACE participants attend the day center three times a week. Day center attendance is based on individual needs and can range from once a week, or every month, to several days a week, as needed.
What happens if a PACE participant needs nursing home care?
The goal of PACE is to keep participants out of a nursing home as long as possible. If at some point it is in the best interest of the participant to receive care in a nursing home, PACE will pay for the care and the supervision of the interdisciplinary team will continue.
What happens if a person wants to leave PACE?
A PACE participant is free to dis-enroll from PACE and resume their benefits in the traditional Medicare and Medicaid programs at any time.
