Dedicated to serving frail seniors, CalOptima’s Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is expanding through new partnerships with selected Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS) centers. With access to these centers, more seniors may join PACE and existing PACE participants will gain more options to receive adult day health care that suits their culture, location or medical condition.
After CalOptima’s thorough review of service quality, financial stability, operational capabilities and more, SeniorServ’s Adult Day Health Care centers in Santa Ana and Anaheim (formerly VIP Adult Day Health Care) are two of the five CBAS centers selected as community-based partners for the expansion.
For more than 30 years, SeniorServ’s Adult Day Health Care centers have been keeping families together by offering a daytime alternative to placing a loved one in a skilled nursing facility. The centers provide safe supervision, personal care, nutritional services, therapies and multicultural environments five days a week for adults with health, mental, or physical disabilities.
“CalOptima PACE and SeniorServ share a dedication to quality, compassionate care for seniors,” said Richard Helmer, M.D., CalOptima Chief Medical Officer. “Both strive to maintain or improve participants’ health to prevent long-term nursing home care. By working with SeniorServ and other CBAS centers, PACE will be able to expand quickly to benefit our growing senior population.”
“We are delighted that our Adult Day Health Care centers were selected,” said Gio Corzo, Vice President of Home and Care Services for SeniorServ. “CalOptima undertook a rigorous process to select qualified CBAS partners for PACE expansion to alternative care settings. We also congratulate the other Adult Day programs selected, including Acacia Adult Day Services, South County Adult Day Services and Sultan Adult Day Health Care, who share our passion and dedication to improving the health of our county’s frail seniors.”
