For Medical Professionals
Using the innovative PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) model, the Brandman Centers for Senior Care (BCSC) enrolls seniors who are age 55 or older, who live in the BCSC service area, need a nursing home level-of-care as determined by the California Department of Health Care Services Long-Term Care Division, and want to stay in the community. Participants must be able to live independently at the time of enrollment without jeopardizing health and safety. BCSC participants' costs are covered by Medi-Cal, Medicare and private payment. Payment depends upon Medicare and Medi-Cal eligibility.
Taking many familiar elements of the traditional healthcare system, BCSC puts them together in a way that makes sense to families, healthcare providers, and the government programs and others that pay for care. For eligible seniors, BCSC provides frail seniors with the option to continue living in the community as long as possible, and one-stop shopping for all healthcare services.
PACE has a 30-year record of success in supporting frail elders. Providers across the nation with a variety of sponsoring organizations have successfully replicated the PACE model.
Nationally, the typical PACE participant resembles the typical nursing home resident — an 80-year old female with seven or eight medical conditions and limitations in several activities of daily living. Nearly half of enrollees have been diagnosed with dementia. Nevertheless, more than 90 percent of PACE participants around the country are able to continue living in their communities.
