Work among amazing people
What if, instead of giving up the things you hold most dear, you had the opportunity to add things that would enrich your life? That's the whole idea behind PACE - the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. And it can make a profound difference in the lives of older adults and those who love and care for them.
PACE empowers those who join the program to remain in their homes by providing comprehensive medical and social services. We help older adults continue to live in the homes and community they love, while visiting us for the compassionate, quality care they need.
