As a healthcare provider, your entire career has been spent caring for others. Having a local practice means the people in your care are your neighbors and friends. Caring for them goes beyond the routine annual office visit. You are invested in the people that turn to you for advice and see you as a vital part of the community.
The population you care for is primarily comprised of elderly persons that rely upon you for guidance and assistance. You feel compelled to help them make the best possible care choices. You need to be able to understand and explain the features and benefits of all possible options.
After listening to your patients for so many years, you know that one of their primary goals is to avoid nursing home placement when possible. Playing a role in helping them remain at home is at the top of your list. You understand that there are sometimes better alternatives than nursing home placement and it is your responsibility to be fully informed.
Our Beacon of LIFE Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) offers comprehensive care in an adult day care setting, where patients can receive the care they need and when they need it while still living under their own roof. A team of health care professionals is on-site to make sure your patients’ needs are met and their goals are achieved. PACE programs provide a variety of healthcare services in one location and offers transportation as needed to other healthcare appointments.
