We understand that many seniors prefer the safety, comfort and familiarity of their own home. They want to remain as independent as possible, living in their own place rather than a nursing home. PACE makes this want possible; our service provides in-home nursing care to seniors in the San Marcos, San Diego area. This includes a holistic level of care at home, free transportation when needed, medication management, personal care, rehabilitative services and more.
Our program gives assistance in both personal health care and daily activities. After a home safety evaluation has taken place, and any necessary changes are made, our skilled nursing and qualified, caring staff assist our clients to go about their daily lives as independently as possible.
The PACE Home Safety Evaluation
We prioritize the safety of our participants above all else. For this reason, our qualified team conducts a mandatory safety evaluation, paramount for any at home rehabilitation services.
On joining the program, our nurse assesses any noticeable safety risks and tripping hazards These may include anything from loose rugs, electrical cords or clutter.
Our team might also suggest and indicate improvements that could make the home safer and more accessible for the potential participant. This may include wheelchair ramps or grab bars, and other in-home enhancements that are considered medically necessary.
These improvements are provided at no cost to our participants.
