AltaMed Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
Residents will have the opportunity to rotate through AltaMed PACE sites for their outpatient geriatrics rotation. The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, or PACE, was established by Medicare to help independent seniors with complex medical needs. The program helps participants avoid admission to nursing homes and instead, receive the care and services necessary to help them stay safe, comfortable, and healthy living in their own home.
PACE offers care coordination, transportation, social services, and meals, all in a positive, stimulating environment. It’s health care that puts the focus on ‘care,’ connecting seniors with peers in their community as well as the PACE staff who are committed to treating participants with dignity, respect, and compassion. Residents with an interest in geriatric medicine can also complete an elective rotation.
