Aims to help you navigate those hurdles Leah Rizzo is there to find out how as we get older it can become increasingly difficult to live independently the division between Healthcare and health insurance makes getting proper Healthcare and basic necessities confusing and hard to get that’s where Lisa Bond and the incredible team at PACE your life in Milford Delaware steps in at PACE. What we do is provide comprehensive Coordinated Care to people who are over the age of 55 and finding that they need some supports in the home. Maybe they need help bathing or dressing or with cooking with medication management. And so we really provide all those services in one place for them. If you were to become a participant the team it pays your life meets. Every morning to come up with a customized plan for you to meet your specific Healthcare needs when somebody joins us.

We have an interdisciplinary team that includes a doctor a nurse a home health coordinator a registered dietitian a social worker and activities director and occupational and recreational therapist a transportation manager and personal care attendance and we all work together to develop a customized what we call plan of care for that individual. So how does one become a participant with Pace your life people can self refer they can call us or go on our website to make a self referral. We also get a lot of referrals from family members caregivers Doctors Hospitals and we take those referrals and we reach out we have a group of people that solely focus on the intake and enrollment. We will go out to the home. We’ll work with the participant and their caregivers if they choose to help determine if this is a program that they want to join and if it’s going to be a good fit for them after the enrollment.

We do a nice big mean meal of the day for lunch, and you’re also going to do activities while you’re here and obviously get to socialize with your peers. If you also need to see the doctor, we have a clinic here on site, so you would go back and see your primary care physician whether it be because you’re due for a wellness check or you’re just not feeling Out we can also do blood draws and blood work here so we can do that all on site and we have a rehabilitation gym. That’s really beautiful.

We have buses and vans and we do provide transport to the center but also to doctors appointments and what better spokesperson to tell you how wonderful Pace your life is then one of its participants like Mr. Ed darling I wanted reasons.
