Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly
Older adults have unique, ever-changing needs. PACE—Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly—enriches the lives of older adults because of the comprehensive, integrated services we provide. Our goal is to help older adults maintain the highest level of independence possible.
Rocky Mountain PACE is the only national PACE program in the Pikes Peak region, providing and coordinating all necessary medical care to meet the health care needs of older adults in our community. Older adults and their families do well if they have a role in their own health and we see ourselves as partners in their well-being.
From their physical, social and emotional health, to the simple things like transportation and supportive services that help them access their care, we partner with older adults in keeping them as independent as possible.
Rocky Mountain PACE participants must receive all needed healthcare, including primary care and specialty physician services (other than emergency services) from Rocky Mountain PACE contracted providers. Rocky Mountain PACE participants may be fully and personally liable for the costs of unauthorized or out-of-PACE program agreement services.

Our participants experience their health care delivery with a coordinated, holistic and integrated approach. Our team discusses health care treatment options from many vantage points which gives our participants a strong likelihood for healthy outcomes.
Providers who actually know your name and your medical history.
Our providers are unique in seeing our participants’ “full picture” of health. They are keenly aware of all of the medications, diseases, challenges and complications a participant may face. Health care is complex and keeping it centralized improves care.
Our transportation department means safe and accessible transportation is always available for every appointment. Our friendly drivers make sure participants check-in to their appointment smoothly and on time.
Truly Coordinated Care
Our interdisciplinary team keeps every provider on the same page to ensure our participants’ health needs never fall through the cracks. Health care often involves multiple providers, medications and transitions. We work hard to make it easy for you to make informed decisions about your care.
Beyond Health Care
We know that older adults’ well-being is not just limited to the physical needs, but emotional and social interactions as well. We address the whole person when we look at their health care needs.
Stress-free Health Care Management
Our interdisciplinary team coordinates and partners with older adults and their loved ones on every aspect of care to simplify keeping our participants independent and healthy as possible.
