Nursing Home

There may be times when the interdisciplinary team, in consultation with you and your family, will determine that short-term or long-term placement in a nursing home facility is the most appropriate plan of care for your situation. If this occurs, it will be because your health and/or social situation is such that community living is not appropriate at that time. This placement will be carefully supervised by the PACE CNY team and your participation in the program will continue.

Covered services include:

  • Semi-private room and board (private room when medically necessary)
  • Physician and skilled nursing services (private duty nursing services when medically necessary)
  • Short-term rehabilitation
  • Custodial (long-term) care
  • Personal care and assistance
  • Drugs and biologicals
  • Physical, occupational and recreational therapies and speech-language pathology, if necessary
  • Medical social services
  • Medical supplies and appliances
