(Lafayette, CO) – TRU PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly), an innovative new program of TRU Community Care, is partnering with several area nonprofit agencies to serve the frail senior population in Boulder and southwest Weld Counties. Now open, TRU PACE helps seniors navigate the complex issues associated with aging.
The program provides a safety net for frail seniors ages 55+ who would otherwise need nursing-home-level care. Participants in TRU PACE arrive at the day center (thanks to transportation from Via) to receive interdisciplinary, coordinated care from an 11-member team, including a physician, nurse, nutritionist, physical therapist, and more. Services include recreational therapy, laundry, meals, and prescription management.
“PACE participants are what I consider the most vulnerable members of our community. Via, as the county’s nonprofit transportation provider, is happy to partner with TRU PACE to serve seniors in Boulder and southwest Weld counties.” said Mary Cobb, Director of Communications at Via.
Thanks to local partner organizations Via and Meals on Wheels – Boulder, TRU PACE participants receive mobility support as well as nutritious meals both on-site and to take home. TRU strives to keep these seniors independent and living in their communities for as long as possible.
“We at Meals on Wheels of Boulder are thrilled to partner with TRU PACE! Our organizations are perfectly aligned to increase our ability to meet the senior nutrition needs of our area residents. It is a privilege to be a part of this new service.” remarked Francea Phillips, President & CEO of Meals on Wheels Boulder.
