Primary Care

Our doctors and nurse practitioners specialize in caring for older adults

PACE-RI serves as a medical home for our participants and coordinates all medical and behavioral health care and social services. Our clinical team is made up of geriatricians and other experts at treating older adults with complex health needs. It can be hard for some of our participants to travel so, in those cases, our doctors and nurse practitioners provide care right in the participant’s home. And, because each PACE-RI participant is assigned their own primary care provider, they can be assured their provider will take the time to really get to know them and their health challenges. That connection between patient and primary care provider leads to better care and better outcomes. That’s why PACE-RI participants continue living at home longer and have fewer emergency room visits than other people with similar health conditions.
