Activities at PACE centers

Our PACE centers are the heart of the Providence ElderPlace community. This is where our participants come together for the medical, recreational and therapeutic services that make ElderPlace stand apart from other programs for older adults. Located throughout King County, our centers maintain Providence's high standards of care while fostering independence.

At each ElderPlace location, participants enjoy a number of activities throughout the day. Pet, art and music therapies are popular events; as are gathering to discuss current events; explore religious studies; and engage in creative outlets. During their visit, participants also enjoy a nutritious lunch.

What makes all PACE programs unique is that each center has an embedded medical clinic. So, while participants attend the center for activities and lunch, they also have access to their primary care team. Physicians or nurse practitioners; pharmacists; physical, speech and occupational therapists; social workers and more make up the primary care team at each center. Other primary care services available at the health centers include psychiatry, optometry and foot care.

When a participant needs medical care beyond what is available at our on-site clinic, our ElderPlace team coordinates scheduling the appointment, providing transportation and managing all needed follow up.
