All services offered through Palmetto SeniorCare PACE are planned and authorized through an interdisciplinary team. The team assesses each participant individually, develops and implements the care plan, and monitors progress, modifying the plan as necessary. The program focuses on preventive care, maintenance of functional abilities, and the early recognition and treatment of changes that can signal major problems. Access to a holistic care plan through Palmetto SeniorCare PACE results in less frequent hospitalization and decreased dependency on medications. This leads to a healthier and better quality of life for participating seniors because fewer health care resources are needed, so care is not as costly and participants can spend quality time enjoying one another and the activities of the centers.
