Associate Medical Director, PACE Program – Shelby, NC

Currently retained to fill a PACE Program Associate Medical Director for a non-profit PACE Program in the Shelby, NC.

What is PACE?

PACE (Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly) is a program for frail/elderly recipients who have been determined to need “nursing facility level of care” but wish to remain in their home and community as long as possible. The Pace model provides more care in people’s homes and community settings to prevent more expensive and undesired institutional care. You decide their treatment rather than insurance companies.

Services are organized by a health team that includes a doctor, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, social worker, nutritionist, transportation coordinator, and more. The PACE Center includes a physician’s office, therapy gym, and adult day program. They receive healthy meals, enjoy the social activities with friends daily at the Pace Center. Transportation picks them up at 8 AM daily and transports them to the Pace Center and returns them home daily at 5 PM. Each day is fun filled and really enjoyable..

PACE caregivers help with household chores and personal care. PACE coordinates visits to medical specialists like podiatry, cardiology, and optometry. PACE works closely with clinical pharmacists and pays for all medications and even delivers medications right to the home.

PACE also arranges and pays for all inpatient services, including hospitalizations and nursing home stays for respite, rehabilitation, or long-term placement.
