What Sets McGregor PACE Apart?Wednesday, January 6, 2021
The Difference of Our Community-Based Approach
How We Help Cleveland Seniors Age in Place
By 2030, as reported by the U.S. Census Bureau, all members of the baby boomer generation will be at least age 65. As the senior population grows, so will the number of seniors who reside in a senior care facility. The Center for Disease Control’s most recent data in 2015 reported that 1.3 million people currently lived in a nursing home. That number has likely grown.
Here is the question: How many of those people could remain in their home and be served within their own community if they had access to the appropriate care and services?
The reality is that not all seniors desire to live in a nursing care facility. Instead, many are increasingly desiring to remain in their home. This is where PACE enters the picture for many seniors. The goal of PACE is to allow seniors to age in place in their home and in their community.
Our community-based approach to senior care includes:
Supporting seniors where they are, basing their personalized care on their desires and current level of functioning.
Working together as a team of interdisciplinary professionals to meet a senior’s medical, emotional, and social needs.
Connecting seniors and their families to resources in the community that they may not otherwise have known existed.
Alleviating caregiver stress by assessing and coordinating a senior’s care needs as they evolve and change.
Providing an opportunity to move to the waitlist for The McGregor Home if the need for assisted living care arises.
