Speaker Topic

Over 40% of us provide some level of care for an aging loved one.  That number will increase sharply in the next 10 years as the baby boomer population progresses into retirement. As we age the number of physicians, prescriptions, and level of care needed increases making it difficult to manage.  PACE is a unique program of all-inclusive care that offers elderly adults and their caregivers an alternative to nursing home placement.  We work with the entire family to coordinate medical care, support at home, and focus on prevention.

Speaker Biography
