Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) serves individuals who are age 55 or older who are certified by their state to need nursing home care to be able to live safely in the community at the time of enrollment and who live in a PACE service area. The philosophy of PACE states that it is better for the well being of seniors with chronic illness care needs and their families to be served in the community (rather than in a living facility) whenever possible.
