September is PACE month

FARMVILLE — Centra PACE is celebrating September as the first National PACE month. According to a press release, national PACE month recognizes the work of Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), which coordinate and provide all needed preventive, primary, acute and long-term care services so older adults can continue living at home in their community.

This year’s theme is “Delivering Independence,” celebrating the role of PACE drivers in promoting independence for seniors. “Since opening in Feb. 2009, Centra PACE serves a large area encompassing more than 210 participants in Lynchburg, Farmville, Gretna and the surrounding counties.”
