I'm interested in joining, what do I do next?

First, our intake specialist will speak with you over the phone for basic information, questions and concerns. If you wish to pursue enrollment, a home care assessment is scheduled with the LIFE PACE care coordinator and a registered nurse. Next, we offer a tour of LIFE"S Adult Day Health/LIFE PACE Center. Once enrolled, the interdisciplinary team will complete assessments.

What services does LIFE PACE provide to those who participate?

Delivering all needed medical and supportive services, LIFE PACE provides the entire continuum of care and services to seniors with chronic care needs while maintaining their independence in their home for as long as possible. Services may include the following:

  • Adult Day Health that offers nursing; physical, occupational and recreational therapies; meals; nutritional counseling; social work and personal care;
  • Medical care provided by a LIFE PACE physician familiar with the history, needs and preferences of each participant;
  • Home health care and personal care;
  • All necessary prescription drugs;
  • Social services;
  • Medical specialties, such as audiology, dentistry, optometry, podiatry and speech therapy;
  • Respite care;
  • Hospital and nursing home care when necessary

Can I disenroll?

Yes - if a participant moves out of the service area or simply wishes to end their enrollment, they must notify us. Disenrollment occurs at the end of the month so the client can be re-enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid programs. In addition, LIFE PACE will arrange alternative community services for the participant. While we will do all we can to support a participant the program relies on the participant and family to work together to ensure the safety of the participant in the community.
