Every PACE program has the same goal: to keep participants safe and well at home. At PACE-RI, that goal extends from the first greeting when participants are picked up to the moment they get dropped off in the afternoon. Our team is always looking for ways to maintain the health and vitality of participants, regardless of their health needs. That’s why we also take acute care into consideration when dealing with medically complex individuals.
Our clinical team knows how quickly a person’s health can deteriorate without proper care. So we work tirelessly to prepare and safeguard our participants against preventable illness and disease. However, there are no guarantees against accidents or injuries. When that happens, PACE-RI takes any steps necessary to ensure acute care is provided to our participants. We strive to provide same-day care in our health center, and work with hospitals across Rhode Island including these areas:
- Providence, RI
- Westerly, RI
- Newport, RI
- South Kingstown, RI
- Woonsocket, RI
A Care Plan for Every Need
The PACE-RI health plan takes a comprehensive approach to health. Our staff strives to treat the entire person, and keep participants healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally. This approach allows us to see the big picture that other health plans might miss. As a result, PACE participants see improved health outcomes in the form of fewer hospitalizations and more time spent out of the nursing home.
Our comprehensive approach also accounts for unexpected emergencies. When participants need urgent care or acute care, we act quickly to get them the help they need. That’s one of the reasons that PACE-RI is so popular with older adults across Rhode Island.
Bringing Together a Complete Healthcare Team
There are plenty of reasons to look for a strong healthcare plan to keep yourself or your loved one healthy. For many older adults in Rhode Island, daily care is a top priority. Other folks want to know that they can see a specialist whenever the need might arise. At PACE-RI, we handle everything from home care to acute care visits. Some of the other services we offer include:
- Primary care
- Medication management
- Day center services
- Social work
- Specialist visits
From the dietitian to the life enrichment coordinator, each PACE-RI staff member knows how they contribute to the overall health and wellbeing of participants. That harmony keeps our team in synch and keeps participants out of acute care or urgent care centers.
All Your Health Needs in One Place
The more you look at PACE-RI, the more options you discover. PACE sites are more than just health centers, they are gathering places. The day centers are where participants can connect with one another, make friends, and tell stories. Our centers provide a familiar space for participants who need consistency and also furnish a quiet place for those who need a moment to relax.
No matter your needs, PACE has you covered. From medical care to personal care, we do everything we can to keep participants feeling their best. That attention to detail means fewer trips to the hospital and less need for acute care. It also means more quality time with family, and a longer time living at home.
