InnovAge, an organization that provides personalized care and an array of services to seniors to help them remain as independent as possible throughout the aging process, announces the opening of its first Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) center in California.
“InnovAge Greater California PACE will help serve the increasing need for services for the rapidly growing senior population in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. According to the California Department of Aging, the senior population is estimated to increase by more than 150 percent in San Bernardino and by more than 100 percent in Riverside County by 2020.* InnovAge is committed to providing a variety of solutions for the aging population, so seniors in the area can have more independence and a greater quality of life,” said Maureen Hewitt, president and CEO of InnovAge.
The InnovAge Greater California PACE Center will offer the latest senior care innovations to aging adults in the Inland Empire, including a primary care clinic, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, a therapy gym, in-home care, day rooms for socialization and entertainment and nutrition education. The center will also provide transportation to and from the facility and to and from medical appointments. The center is located at 410 E. Parkcenter Circle North, San Bernardino and will be open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Please note, InnovAge Greater California PACE (IGCAP) participants must receive all needed healthcare services (other than emergency services), including primary care and specialist physician services, from IGCAP or from an entity, person or company authorized by IGCAP. IGCAP participants may be fully and personally liable for the costs of unauthorized or out-of- network services. Medi-Cal beneficiaries who have a share of cost remain responsible for their individual share of cost. Participants without Medi-Cal pay a monthly premium to cover long term care and a premium for Medicare Part D drugs. PACE organizations are regulated by the Centers for Medicare ad Medicaid Services and the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). DHCS does not promote or endorse InnovAge or any provider over another.
