The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly is designed exclusively for seniors who are over the age of 55 and qualify for nursing-home level of care but prefer being as independent as possible. At Gary and Mary West PACE, your freedom and convenience is at the forefront of our priorities. As a participant, you will have a passionate team of doctors, nurses, social workers, home/personal care workers, therapists, and others who are focused on helping you receive the resources you need to live a healthy life. Participants of the program can enjoy a full range of compassionate care, transportation, medication management, community engagement and personal support that enables independent living. All of this comes at little to no cost — depending on your eligibility.
Get the Extra Help and Care You Need
Our team works with you to develop a care plan, personalized to your unique needs and preferences, based on what makes sense for you. As your needs change, the plan will change with you. As an added benefit, all prescription medications are also included. Our all-inclusive services may consist of, but aren’t limited to the following:
We recognize the challenge involved in keeping track of medicines needed for different physiological conditions, administering them on time, and the consequences of improper medication management
. The CDC reports that 50% of prescribed medicines are taken incorrectly in regards to timing, dosage and frequency. To counter these challenges, our members are provided with prescriptions and over-the-counter medication by a dedicated primary caregiver.
Meals Preparation and Nutrition
Our registered dieticians are always prepared to cater to our participants’ unique dietary needs
— each meal is tailored to specific requirements that may involve altering the ingredients to suit food allergies or medical conditions like diabetes. The dieticians, nutritionists, and kitchen staff at PACE work together to deliver exactly what our participants need.
The PACE at home
facility is designed to provide all the necessary medical and personal care to our participants in the comfort of their own homes, without needing to visit/be admitted to a nursing home. This allows participants to live independently, close to their loved ones and/or community members.
The team at Gary and Mary West senior center consists of physical therapists that work in conjunction with the participants to conduct therapeutic exercises
, fitness, strength training, and other forms of activities that are necessary in ensuring their overall well-being.
The range of services at Gary and Mary West also includes free transportation
— a demand-response transit service that helps seniors get around town and do the things needed for them to stay in good health.
