TRU Community Care’s program, TRU PACE, celebrated its second year with a prom last Thursday for all of their participants and staff!
A day to honor the success, growth, and future health of the TRU PACE community.
Since opening the TRU PACE program in 2017, this innovative model has served more than 154 participants. The PACE model is designed to provide a community of all-inclusive care for individuals in need of nursing-home-level services, helping them to live as independently as possible. Events like the TRU PACE Prom highlight the many social benefits of the PACE model.
Joy, laughter, and smiles fill the room, making it quite evident the value and need of this program for the elderly, in illness and in health. TRU Community Care is devoted to making sure that life is supported and cared for at every moment.
PACE, Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, is a permanent Medicare program, established in 1997. The program is an essential part of TRU Community Care as it supports a variety of acute, preventative, and long term continuance services that are sustained in health care services and integrated by the community of TRU.
The purpose of the PACE program is focused on providing a unified community of health care services to support the following:
- An enhanced quality of life
- Maximized dignity of and respect for older adults
- Participants autonomy – to live at home, with their community, for as long as medically and socially possible
- Preservation and support of the participant’s family unit
Each service of PACE is crucial to providing well-rounded health for the participant that supports their mind, body, and disposition in life.
All of the members that make up the TRU PACE program are essential to supporting TRU Community Care’s mission and experiences like the TRU PACE Prom!
According to the 2010 census, only 3.1% of older adults in need of care lived in nursing homes, most prefer to stay at home. TRU Community Care provides every service possible for these transitions faced later in life, in and with a community of experts, volunteers, and families.
TRU PACE is a program of TRU Community Care, a Colorado-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Though the PACE program is a part of the Medicare/Medicaid governmental program, donation-based support is necessary to maintain a high level of health, community, and support that is so necessary to the participants.
