Ann Conn, President & CEO, The McGregor Foundation had the opportunity to speak at the State House in Columbus, Ohio to give tesimony in support of expanding Ohio’s PACE program on May 5, 2021, the first of several . The Program of ALL-Inclusive Care for the Elderly.
Currently, McGregor is the only PACE provider in the State of Ohio helping older aduts and families age successfully in the place they call home while receiving services and supports when they need them.
Conn shared, “Imagine a program where frail older adults reliant on state funding for health services receive coordinated care without giving their medical history every time they start a new service and can live happier, healthier lives in their homes for a fraction of the cost of a nursing home stay. Thankfully, this program currently exists in Ohio and we are seeking to provide more Ohioans access to this worthy program.”
“The Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) delivers coordinated care outside of a nursing home for those who require a high level of medical and social care to maintain independence. PACE coverage includes all Medicaid and Medicare covered services which are delivered by an interdisciplinary team of professionals. Working together, the team ensures the participants receive the benefits of coordinated comprehensive care.”
