Pritzker on PACE

Gov Pritzker used Senior Day at the Illinois State Fair Monday to roll out a new program for the most senior Illinoisans.

PACE is the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly.

“Seniors who enroll in PACE will receive interdisciplinary and comprehensive services right in their communities, right at home,” said the governor. “That’s everything from home and personal care to individualized specialty medical care  and diagnostic services.
