PACE - The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly. Seniors with Chronic Care Needs

The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) model is centered around the belief that it is better for the well-being of seniors with chronic care needs and their families to be served in the community whenever possible.

In order to qualify for PACE, a person must be 55 years of age or older, live in a PACE service area, and be certified by the state to need nursing home-level care.

My patients that are using the MD2 have Dementia. We try them with traditional med-planners first and if they fail we go to the MD2 (e-pill MD2 MedSmart SKU 993019 / UPC 837066001258). I was skeptical at first thinking they would not remember what to when the alarm went off but I have not had one failure yet. Several of the other Nurses use them and have had the same success.

The typical PACE participant is very similar to the average nursing home resident. On average, she is 80 years old, has 7.9 medical conditions and is limited in approximately 3 activities of daily living. Forty-nine percent of PACE participants have been diagnosed with dementia. Despite a high level of care needs, more than 90 percent of PACE participants are able to continue to live in the community.
