September is National PACE Awareness Month, celebrating the innovation of the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). The PACE model of care allows seniors with long-term care needs to remain living in the comfort of their home for as long as possible and as independently as possible.

PACE provides a team of health care professionals who help Grand Valley seniors with comprehensive care—medical, physical, emotional, and social care—like doctor or health care provider visits, transportation, medication and/or medical equipment, social activities, hospital visits, and nursing home stays when needed.

“It’s exciting to celebrate our first successful year in Mesa County. HopeWest’s PACE currently provides wrap-around care to 52 participants, with more enrollments each month. This program truly closes a gap in care for the valley’s seniors who need a little extra support and wish to gracefully age in the comfort of their own home. We are honored to serve seniors on an individualized level through the PACE program,” said Cassie Mitchell, President & CEO of HopeWest.

Throughout the month of September, HopeWest PACE invites families to see firsthand how the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) could benefit their loved ones. Call today to schedule a home visit, take a tour, or talk to an Enrollment Specialist at (970) 255-7223.
