PACE Day at the Capitol to Educate on the Value of Aging in Place
Fourteen Michigan PACE organizations (Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) will gather on the Capitol lawn Tuesday, May 16 to raise awareness of a program that supports seniors living at home despite being nursing home-eligible.
“Our goal with this event is to educate Michigan legislators about the value of PACE, how it benefits their constituents, and how they can help expand services to more seniors in our state,” said Stephanie Winslow, PACE Association of Michigan Executive Director. “The more our state leaders can do to help residents at all income levels and walks of life maintain their independence, the better. It’s a win for everyone.”
The PACE Day at the Capitol event will include remarks from special guest Elizabeth Hertel, Director, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, PACE Association of Michigan Awards presentation, a call to action and a legislative luncheon on the Capitol lawn. Participants and staff from PACE programs across the state will be on hand to share stories of how PACE has positively impacted their lives.
