Reasons to Consider PACE for Your ParentFriday, January 8, 2021
Choosing McGregor PACE for Your Parent’s Senior Care
Why Join the PACE Family?
Let’s start with a common scenario: You are worried about your mother who currently lives alone. She suffered a stroke over a year ago and has had greater difficulty with daily living tasks like cooking and bathing. You and other family members would like her to move to a senior care community to put your minds at ease, but she is adamant about remaining in her home. You feel like there are no other options but to force her into a nursing home and are dreading the conversation.
Can you relate to this situation? If you can, and if your loved one lives in Cuyahoga County, there may be an alternative to a nursing home that you have not considered: McGregor PACE. The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is designed to help eligible seniors age in place and remain in their home. These are just a few reasons to consider PACE for your parent:
Reduce caregiver stress.
The burden on adult children attempting to care for an aging parent or loved one in their home can be immense. You struggle to balance your own responsibilities and work with fulfilling your role as a caregiver. When your loved one is enrolled in PACE, a team of health professionals and caregivers shoulder your burden during the day, giving you the flexibility and freedom to focus on work and other responsibilities.
Get peace of mind.
When you are not with your loved one during the day, you are likely worried about his or her safety. With PACE, your loved one has a safe place to go during the day, as well as the in-home support needed to live safely and independently. This support will evolve as your parent’s needs evolve. Every PACE participant is assigned a coordinator who assesses changes as they are needed, such as a lift chair installation or a medication change, and ensures they are made.
When a parent is enrolled in PACE, you do not need to deal with an ER and the associated costs of emergency care. McGregor PACE seniors have immediate access to the PACE facility and our 24-hour on-call medical staff available for emergency needs.
Realize your parent’s dream of aging in place.
For the child of an aging parent who desperately wants to remain in their home, PACE is the missing piece of the puzzle. PACE provides the services and care needed to allow your loved one to remain in their beloved home within their community.
McGregor PACE believes in providing community-based care and offers Cleveland seniors support from an interdisciplinary team of therapists, social workers, medical staff, and others.
