Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is a comprehensive care model that enables seniors to live as independently as possible in their own homes. These individuals must be age 55 and over and certified by the state as eligible for nursing-home level of care. Baptist Health PACE currently meets this need for about 3% of the Arkansans in its four-county service area. Utilizing interdisciplinary teams to meet both medical and non-medical needs, we ensure better care, safety, and dignity for our seniors allowing them to remain in their home environment as long as possible.
Baptist Health PACE participants receive necessary healthcare as well as services that traditional insurance programs often do not cover. Needs are assessed and determined on an individual level. Past examples include ramps, medical equipment, air conditioners, food, funds for electric bills, and more to ensure our seniors can remain in their homes without compromising their health and quality of life.
We are uniquely positioned with our purpose of compassionate care to minister to the most frail and vulnerable of our population. Without the PACE program, many would simply not receive the care they need.
