McGregor PACE expansion to Lorain County

Ground breaking will create permanent jobs and enhance services for older adults.

It’s great to hear that there is much anticipation for the expansion of the PACE program in Lorain County with programs aimed at enhancing the lives of older adults and the significant positive impact it will provide for communities.

Cleveland-based nonprofit the McGregor Foundation is planning to open a new PACE (Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) facility in Elyria off of state Route 57, just west of Lowe’s.

PACE is a state-funded program that provides both medical and social services to seniors, both at its facility and across the county in their homes.

A new two-building project designed to both house and serve seniors is seeking to open in Elyria and will begin its approval process this week.

The McGregor project is expected to come first, with CEO Ann Conn saying the organization hoped to break ground by March. Conn said that the investment would come from a $6 million grant from the Ohio Department of Aging, paid for with American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) money.

McGregor and CHN have worked together in the past — CHN worked on an assisted living facility at McGregor’s East Cleveland headquarters and an independent living facility near the same location.

As part of the long awaited Expand PACE Ohio, this two-part senior care center and housing project is being realized in Elyria.
