For the absolute best in care for the elderly and infirm, skilled nursing San Diego based St Pauls care center located at 111 Elm Street (between 1st and 2nd Avenue, close to downtown San Diego in the Bankers Hill area) is setting the PACE in primary and secondary medical care for the elderly.
The program of all inclusive care for the elderly (PACE) was developed originally in San Francisco in the 1970’s, and the outcome was so positive that the necessary funding was put in place to facilitate the duplication of the care model across the country.
The skilled nursing San Diego based PACE makes available to its clients and patients primary care doctors, medication and pharmacy requirements, occupational therapy and an adult day program.
Home care is made available for clients residing in their own homes to help keep them independent, with services including meal preparation, shopping, cleaning and bathing.
The unique co-ordinated program of care makes available for the elderly and/or infirm pioneering and ground breaking levels of choice and freedom in their health care requirements.
Currently there are almost ten PACE centers in California, but the program of all inclusive care for the elderly (PACE) is the only center of its type in the San Diego area, and is funded by Medi-Cal, a Medi-Cal/Medicare combo or by private pay. Donations are also made by the generous benefactors that support the work and endeavors of PACE, providing services for clients in the San Diego area.
Assisted living services are provided by PACE at both the center on Elm Street and also at the home of the seniors.
At the center, the clients are dropped off where they are able to receive treatment, therapy and/or services specific to the individual care plan devised and conceived by its team of expert medical practitioners and therapists.
Recreation and social stimulation, physical therapy or attention by doctors are just some of the services available at the center, but PACE cannot be summed up by its individual parts; the sum is greater than the whole.
The targeted goal of St. Paul’s PACE is to assist frail elderly persons to continue living safely, effectively and successfully in their own homes, with their good health and dignity intact.
