"PACE can help - with an option to nursing home care for your loved one."

Elderhaus is entering its fourth year serving PACE participants. Elderhaus became the first PACE site in North Carolina in 2008! PACE stands for Program of All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly.

The PACE model was developed to address the needs of elderly and frail elderly individuals who want to remain in the community and receive home and community-based services rather than receive care in a nursing home. Once enrolled, the PACE Program provides full medical care, social services, and personal care services required by the individual.

(PACE is a Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).  PACE is based upon the successful long-term care model in San Francisco known as On Lok.  This program was developed as a special health plan for senior citizens.  Older people often have medical problems that last for long periods of time.  This health plan will arrange for doctors, nurses or other specially trained people to help with these problems.  It also gives Elderhaus PACE participants a place to go to receive this care.

Elderhaus PACE is a complete health care program that offers a more personal way of getting health care.  All of us at Elderhaus PACE want to get to know you and our staff will work with you and your family to provide the care that you need.)

 

Elderhaus PACE operates under a contract with the North Carolina Division of Medical Assistance and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Elderhaus PACE participants must receive all covered services, except emergency services, through Elderhaus PACE staff or its contracted network of providers and facilities. To be covered, all non-emergency services must be authorized by Elderhaus PACE. Elderhaus PACE participants who obtain services without Elderhaus PACE authorization may be personally and fully liable for the costs of the unauthorized services.

 

To be considered for PACE, you must:
  • Live in New Hanover or Northern Brunswick County

  • Be over 55

  • Determined by the state to be eligible for nursing home level of care

  • Be able to live safely in the community with a care-giver.

If you are eligible for Medicaid, and depending on income, PACE services are offered free of charge.  If your income is over the threshold determined by Medicaid, you may still be eligible to participate by paying a premium. 

If you or a family member may be interested, please contact the Elderhaus Social Worker at 343-8209.  The social worker will be able to help you step through the process for Medicaid and PACE.
