Program of All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly (PACE) Helps Older Adults Remain Independent

University Hospitals Center for Lifelong Health offers innovative health care for seniors through the Medicare/Medicaid-designated Program of All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly (PACE). This is done in collaboration with the A.M. McGregor Group and Senior Independence, a strategic partnership designed to develop home- and community-based services for older adults in Cuyahoga County.

PACE, a national home- and community-based program, offers care and services in a variety of settings, including a patient’s home, within their community, or at a PACE-designated center. UH Center for Lifelong Health works with these established and coordinated programs so nursing home-eligible seniors do not have to enter nursing homes, but can continue to live within the community and have comprehensive medical, nursing, social services and rehabilitative care. Only 7 percent of PACE participants nationally reside in nursing homes because of the individual attention and expert health care provided by the program’s caregivers.

UH Selected as Clinical Provider at McGregor PACE Center for Independent Living

The McGregor PACE Center for Independent Living, located at 2373 Euclid Heights Boulevard, Cleveland Heights, Ohio, selected University Hospitals as the contracted health system provider for medical services. This clinical partnership allows geriatricians and gerontologic nurse practitioners from the Center for Lifelong Health to provide primary care to participants of the McGregor PACE Program in Cleveland and the surrounding areas.

Offering Clinical Assistance to Seniors in a Variety of Settings

University Hospitals provides assistance both at the McGregor PACE Center and to homebound seniors with heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, memory loss and other health problems. By building on the strength of the UH House Calls Program, our specialists from the Center for Lifelong Health have integrated this disease management-based model of care into PACE services.

Transportation is available for seniors that need assistance. Buses bring seniors who can be safely transported to the McGregor PACE Center for medical attention and occupational and recreational therapy provided by the UH team. If unable to be safely transported to the PACE Center, UH caregivers can also visit participants at home to address health and personal needs.
