PACE Care Team

The PACE team will:

  • Develop a specialized, individualized healthcare plan for and with each participant.
  • Manage all healthcare services for participants.
  • Help participants to live safely in the community.

These experts provide valuable skills and experience so program participants remain comfortably at home. They take the time to get to know each participant individually.
