PACE® - Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly
What are Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly?
PACE is a program that helps adults age 55 and older meet their health care needs in the community instead of moving into a nursing home or other care facility. No one lives at PACE or stays overnight. During visits to a PACE facility, a trained and experienced team of healthcare professionals give participants the coordinated care and medical treatment they need. PACE is transforming care for older adults.
Huron Valley PACE is the sixth PACE program in the State of Michigan. There are over 100 sites in the U.S. Huron Valley PACE serves Washtenaw and Monroe counties, as well as parts of Oakland, Wayne and Livingston counties. Participants receive medical and other services in the Day Center located in Ypsilanti, Michigan, including:
- a primary care medical clinic
- several areas for recreational activities
- a hot meal for lunch photo
Huron Valley PACE’s local transportation partner is Huron Valley Ambulance, one of Emergent Health Partners’ member ambulance services. HVA provides door-to-door transportation to and from participants’ homes and the Day Center in special buses and wheelchair vans.
