When you join PACE, you will have a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, physical, speech and occupational therapists, and others who are involved in arranging and providing for your care.  This team will work with you to create an individualized care plan that focused on helping you live safely in your own home for as long as possible and ensuring that you receive all the health care services you may need.  Services are available at home or at the adulty day center and on-site clinic.  In some cases, you can continue under the care of your current physician if she/he agrees to work with the plan.  You can go to the center to participate in social and health maintenance activities and enjoy meals with other enrollees.  The plan arranges for your transportation to the center/clinic.  You must be 55 and older to join PACE.
