PACE programs - alternative to nursing home care

I just heard about this program called PACE - here's a brief description:

"Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (known as PACE) are innovative because they provide continuous care and services offering individuals eligible for nursing home care the option of continuing to live in the community. Because these health care costs are traditionally paid for through the Medicare and Medicaid programs and out of people’s pockets – access to a comprehensive system of care that encompasses preventive, primary, acute and long term care is usually not possible. One key to the PACE model is the combining of dollars from different funding streams in order to deliver a comprehensive set of services focused on the health and well-being of the individual."

I don't know a lot about it yet, but at first glance it looks like an interesting program. There are only something like 40 programs in 22 states right now. If you'd like to learn more about it the website is: National PACE Association: Home
