Program aims to keep seniors out of nursing homes

What is PACE?

The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®) is a comprehensive, fully integrated, provider based health plan for the frailest and costliest members of our society – those who require a nursing home level of care. The PACE philosophy is centered on the belief that it is better for frail individuals and their families to be served in the community whenever possible. Although all PACE participants are eligible for nursing home care, 95 percent continue to live at home. (from National PACE Association)

Paul Sharman is a Burlington city councilor who introduced PACE to Burlington in January 2020.
