What Is PACE?

 

PACE organizations offer preventive care and comprehensive support for eligible seniors.

PACE Southeast Michigan is a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). PACE Southeast Michigan uses Medicare, Medicaid and private funds to cover all of your medically necessary care and services.

Mission

PACE Southeast Michigan - (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) is a unique health plan and care provider, committed to keeping seniors with challenging healthcare conditions in their home, by caring for their medical, physical and social needs.

  • Extraordinary Care
  • Collaborative Teamwork
  • Inspired Achievement
  • Accountability
  • Adaptive Growth

The PACE philosophy: Complete health care

The focus of PACE Southeast Michigan is to help you live in the community and stay in your own residence for as long as possible. To meet this goal, PACE organizations focus on preventive care. Although all people who enroll in PACE are eligible for nursing home care, only 7 percent nationally live in nursing homes.

PACE services are designed to meet your individual needs:

  • PACE Southeast Michigan provides care and services in the home, the community and our day health center.
  • Many PACE Southeast Michigan participants receive most of their care from our expert staff at our center.
  • To make sure you can attend our day health center, we provide all medically necessary transportation to our center for activities and medical appointments.

One source for all of your care

When you enroll in the PACE Southeast Michigan program, we provide and are responsible for all of your care, which is provided to you at no cost. However, you may be financially responsible for any care you receive outside the program that is not approved by the PACE Southeast Michigan interdisciplinary team (except in an emergency).

Stay in the home you love, see us for the care you need.

Our goal is to provide our frail senior community members with the care, medical treatment and support they need to achieve the highest quality of life – while staying independent as long as possible. Our elder care experts offer an alternative to nursing home placement that features comprehensive, coordinated care for a senior’s medical, social and physical needs, while also providing peace of mind for family caregivers.
