DETROIT — The Center for Senior Independence — part of the national PACE program— is changing its name to PACE Southeast Michigan, to further connect its work and resources with the national program.
PACE stands for Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, a health plan funded by Medicare and Medicaid that provides comprehensive care and services to eligible seniors. The non-profit organization jointly owned by Henry Ford Health System and the Presbyterian Villages of Michigan, serves seniors at two locations — Detroit Northwest College Park and the Thome Rivertown Neighborhood in Detroit. Plans are underway to establish additional PACE Southeast Michigan sites in Macomb and Oakland counties.
“The support and services we provide allow older adults to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible,” says Mary Kummer Naber, president and CEO of PACE Southeast Michigan. “The new name does not change the high level of care, services and programs we currently offer our participants, rather, we will expand our reach and presence to better serve seniors living in southeast Michigan.”
