September is being celebrated as National PACE® (Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) Month. The observance recognizes the work of PACE, which coordinates and provides all needed medical care for its patients, including preventive, primary, acute and long-term care services. The program helps older adults continue living at home in their community. This year’s theme of “Caring for Caregivers, Caring for You” highlights the role of caregivers and the support provided to them by PACE programs.
Palmetto SeniorCare PACE, sponsored by Palmetto Health, serves 300 seniors in four locations: downtown Columbia, Shandon, Lexington and White Rock. The program has served the community for 30 years. Nationally, there are 124 PACE organizations serving more than 45,000 PACE enrollees in 31 states.
PACE enrollees are age 55 and over and need a nursing home level of care, but more than 95 percent are able to live in the community with the services and support they receive through PACE.
