Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
Hopkins ElderPlus is a voluntary health program designed to provide and coordinate all needed preventive, primary, acute and long-term care services so that older individuals can continue living in the community.
A care coordination team meets with each participant to develop and manage an individual health care plan. Services include:

The day health care center provides health, social, rehabilitative, recreational and personal care services.
Hopkins ElderPlus provides personal care and skilled nursing services, as prescribed by the care coordination team.
If medically necessary, Hopkins ElderPlus will provide walkers, canes, wheelchairs, hearing aids, eyeglasses and other equipment.
Podiatry, psychiatry, dentistry, optometry and audiology are available, if medically necessary. Other specialties available by referral.
Hopkins ElderPlus provides all prescription medications.
Participants receive a hot, well-balanced noon meal, plus snacks in the day health care center. If needed, Hopkins ElderPlus provides meals at home.
Nursing care treatment, education and counseling are available to participants and their families. Nurses also administer and monitor medications.
Our staff assists participants with bathing, grooming and laundry needs while they are at the day health care center.
Physician Care & Supervision

Our trained staff keeps participants active with a variety of arts, crafts, restorative exercises, social activities and entertainment.
