National PACE Month

September is National PACE Month!
 
Each September the National PACE Association (NPA) celebrates Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).
 
PACE is an extremely successful care design that allows nursing home-eligible individuals to live in their communities for as long as possible.
 
PACE Programs keep more than 95 percent of their enrollees in the community and out of nursing homes.
 
This year’s theme is “Your Care, Your Community, You’re Home.” This theme highlights the successes the PACE organizations have had in keeping their participants safe during the pandemic.
 
PACE Programs have been in operation for over 30 years and have over 200 organizations in 31 states. There are currently more than 51,000 individuals are enrolled in a PACE Program.
 
In order to be eligible for enrollment in a PACE program, a person must meet the following criteria:
  • Must be 55 or older
  • Must live in a PACE service area
  • Must have one or more health conditions that meet state nursing home eligibility requirements
  • Must be able to live safely in the community with the support of the PACE organization.
