OCEANPORT, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Enrollment for a new Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly
(PACE) has begun for Monmouth County residents. The Beacon of LIFE
center was established to deliver PACE services and will provide
community-based care and services to people who otherwise need nursing
home level of care.
“PACE programs exist to help the elderly live safely in their own
community for as long as possible,” says Susan Skola, Executive Director
of Beacon of LIFE. “Our elderly residents of Monmouth County can now
receive comprehensive health and recreational care needs while residing
in their own homes.”
In order to enroll in a PACE program, individuals must be age 55 or
older, live in the service area of a PACE organization, be certified as
meeting the need for nursing home level of care by their state, and be
able to live safely in the community with the support of PACE services.
The facility is situated on a 16-acre campus setting in Fort Monmouth.
Transportation to and from the facility is provided. Among the services
participants receive are primary care, social services, physical
therapy, home health care, prescription drugs, dental care, adult day
care and much more.
“With our PACE program, families can rest assured that their loved ones
are being taken care of, especially if they are not ready to move into a
nursing home,” said Skola. “Beacon of LIFE provides a unique program
based on individual participants’ needs so that participants can receive
medical care and participate in recreational activities and other
therapies all under one roof.”
Beacon of LIFE accepts Medicaid, Medicare or private payment. If
participants are eligible and enroll in PACE and are Medicaid or
Medicare and Medicaid eligible, they pay no fees for all authorized
services. Participants may be fully liable for the costs of unauthorized
or out-of-PACE program services. Enrollment is voluntary and
participants may disenroll at any time.
