PACE during Covid-19
PACE of the Southern Piedmont – a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) organization sponsored by Kintegra Health and Lutheran Services Carolinas – had to redefine how and where we provided the care for our participants at the outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Our services remained open and seamlessly shifted from being based in our Day Health and Wellness Center to in the home, remote, or a combination of all three. PACE of the Southern Piedmont takes pride in its resilience among its team of providers, caretakers, and administration to continue providing support to its participants while they remain living safely and healthy in their community. PACE provides activities in the home, rehabilitation therapy in the home, as well as wellness checks by healthcare professionals. PACE Medical Clinic remains open helping to ensure routine medical concerns are addressed. We are proud and respect the commitment our teammates, families and caregivers have exemplified during this challenging global pandemic.
The continued efforts of the PACE of the Southern Piedmont team and its participants and caregivers have provided opportunity for creativity and flexibility. Regardless of a global health pandemic, maintaining our seniors living at home, safely, without risks of exposure, is imperative to us. PACE provides the necessary support and resources to maintain our seniors living in the community they wish to live in. Our team at PACE of the Southern Piedmont is committed to helping our participants remain safe and well at home.
