September Meeting: PACE
Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) serve seniors with chronic care needs by providing access to the full continuum of preventive, primary, acute, and long term care services. PACE programs take many familiar elements of our traditional health care system and reorganize them in a way that makes sense to families, health care providers, and the government programs and others that pay for care. CarePartners will be starting a PACE program serving Buncombe/Henderson Counties in the spring of 2014. Come to this informative meeting and learn about this new and innovative program and a new option for the care needs of our aging population.
