The second PACE program to launch in the state of Michigan was Care Resources, which has been helping to keep West Michigan seniors out of nursing homes since 2006.
A community-based program for people 55 years or older, Care Resources provides comprehensive care to the senior citizens of Kent County, as well as portions of Allegan, Barry, Ionia, and Ottawa counties, while promoting healthy, independent living and helping prevent nursing home placement.
Care Resources provides transportation with a fleet of 20 vehicles; an on-site physician, medical clinic, and 2,200 square-foot pharmacy; vision, dental, audiology, and foot care services; laundry and shower facilities; an extensive therapy gym; and grocery shopping services.
“We are committed to our participants,” Horsley-Pettigrew said. “We are an aging society, and we need to take care of each other.”
