The care you need, within the home you love.

We all want the best care for our aging loved one, but getting that care can be frustrating. If you have an aging loved one, you know what itís like to drive your loved one from appointment to appointment; to manage all of their medications; to deal with doctors who donít talk to one another; and you struggle with leaving your loved one at home, alone and without the supervision, company and interaction they want and need.

PACE is a different kind of care.

It doesnít have to be this way. Thousands of families across America have found a different and better kind of care for their aging loved ones Ė PACE. And what these PACE families have experienced is a program that provides and coordinates all the types of care your loved one needs, so you donít have to place them in a nursing home. This care includes:

● Medical care                      ● Personal care

● Rehabilitation                      ● Social interaction

● Medications                        ● And even transportation

All in one place so your loved one can live at home.

PACE is care that revolves around you.

PACE was created as a way to provide you, your family, caregivers, and professional health care
providers the flexibility to meet your health care needs and to help you continue living in the community.

An interdisciplinary team of professionals will provide all of the coordinated care you need.
These professionals are also experts in working with older people. They will work together with
you and your family (if appropriate) to develop your most effective plan of care.

Once enrolled in PACE, the amount you pay each month will not change no matter what care
and services you might need. The program provides all the care and services covered by
Medicare and Medicaid, as authorized by the interdisciplinary team, as well as additional
medically-necessary care and services not covered by Medicare and Medicaid. PACE provides
coverage for prescription drugs, doctor care, transportation, home care, checkups, hospital visits,
and even nursing home stays whenever necessary.

In PACE there is never a co-pay, deductible or coverage gap so you can access the care, services
and medications you need. Because PACE provides and is responsible for all of your care, you
may be held financially responsible for any care you receive outside the program that is not
approved by the PACE interdisciplinary team.

Note: You can leave a PACE program at any time. Enrollment and disenrollment usually occurs
at the beginning of each month.

Note: You cannot enroll or disenroll at the Social Security office, you should contact the PACE
organization directly.


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.
