The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is a system that provides comprehensive medical and social services to senior citizens. PACE services aim to assist those in need of help and to address their health care needs in their communities as opposed to providing them in a nursing home or other assisted living facility. The PACE program uses a team of health care professionals to coordinate with families to ensure the proper regimen of care is provided. Individuals typically qualify for PACE if they are considered to be frail and meet the eligibility requirements for Medicare and Medicaid benefits. PACE centers that provide the staff and service must meet the state and federal safety guidelines.
