Updated: Thursday, October 10 2013, 09:45 AM EDTA program of all-inclusive care for the elderly, otherwise known as PACE, is coming to the mountains.CarePartners is constructing an 18,000-square-foot pace building in south Asheville to serve up to 150 people.The PACE program will primarily serve patients eligible for medicare and medicaid, who want to safely remain at home and avoid a nursing home. Sometimes care for this population falls through the cracks or is fragmented.Dave Beijer, PT, PACE Executive Director, "we will be able to under one roof coordinate that care with a variety of professionals here on site, as well as facilities around the region."Participants must be at least 55, live in Buncombe or Henderson counties, and be eligible for a skilled nursing home level of care.For more information about PACE, click here.
