Eleven Disciplines Help Chart Successful Course for Care Resources

Sometimes, it’s just a simple note.

But in it, Tom Muszynski finds inspiration that reassures him Care Resources, the community-based program where he serves as chief operating officer, is on the right track.

“I received a card recently from a family who said that without our program, their mother never would have been able to remain in her home during the last year,” he says.

A main reason? The fact that Care Resources and its caregivers adhere to something called the 11 disciplines, administered by professionals in 11 health-related fields who work together to treat not just a symptom, but the entire person.

With a Day Center located in Grand Rapids at 4150 Kalamazoo Ave. SE, Care Resources is part of a larger national entity called PACE, short for Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. PACE is committed to keeping adults 55 years and older with challenging health care conditions in their home by caring for their medical, physical and social needs.

The 11 disciplines of PACE focus on providing a Day Care center; and delivering primary care, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, recreational therapy, social work, dietary services, transportation, personal care services, and home care services to promote healthy and independent living and help prevent nursing home placement.

With such a wide range of health care services, Care Resources is able to ensure participants get high-quality care in a timely manner.
