Senior CommUnity Care, a Volunteers of America program, is celebrating its eight-year anniversary for the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) which features comprehensive, coordinated care for adults age 55 and older.
The PACE program is currently serving a total of 306 participants in both Montrose and Delta counties with the care, medical treatment and support they need to achieve the highest quality of life -- while remaining independent as long as possible.
In Western Colorado, Senior CommUnity Care PACE has three day center locations in their service area -- Montrose, Eckert and Paonia. The day center is a physical location where medical, recreational, social and other support services are provided to participants in addition to serving a nutritious meal. The number of days per week a participant comes in to the day center is based on their needs.
The public is invited to help celebrate the anniversary at an open house Tuesday, Aug. 30, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Eckert Day Center, 11485 Hwy 65.
