After serving our country, veterans deserve quality senior care that gives them the freedom to make their own healthcare choices. Read on to learn how the Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
can serve U.S. military veterans.
PACE for Veterans
Independence is fundamental to the PACE model of care. Through PACE, older adults can live in their homes for as long as safely possible, with access to comprehensive
healthcare, state-of-the-art facilities
, and more, all in one place.
Veterans may be eligible for PACE through their benefits provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
. Most PACE participants, including veterans, receive PACE at low or no cost
through Medicaid and Medicare.
Every PACE participant plays an active role in making their own healthcare decisions. You are considered part of the care team
, and our staff are dedicated to working with each veteran to make a plan that works best for them. Watch this video
to learn more about PACE and all that the program can offer.
At InnovAge, we’ve seen first-hand how PACE can improve veterans’ lives. Joseph, 88, was referred to PACE by a fellow Korean War veteran who was already in the program.* Prior to joining PACE, the VA placed Joseph in an assisted living facility. According to him, the combination of PACE benefits with assisted living has been an ideal situation.
“I don’t have to worry about my healthcare because InnovAge takes care of me,” he says. “It’s a perfect match. I even receive physical therapy through the program, and it’s nice to spend time with the other participants.”
The partnership between PACE and the VA opens up doors to many other services that wouldn’t normally be available through the VA alone.
“I received more treatment in the first five months of being a PACE participant than I did in five years on my own with the VA,” says Marcus, 75, a Vietnam War veteran at InnovAge PACE. “A lot of veterans need this place. The program is extremely organized and the staff are helpful.”
