I no longer have ‘alone time’. I always worked in retail and love being with people. I am 62 years old and have been a diabetic for 25 years and on dialysis for 11 years. The PACE program was suggested to me at a dialysis meeting not long ago and it was certainly the right decision. I live in the community with one of my sons and his family.
PACE has done so much for my family and me in just these first 5 months. I have no worries about my health now with the clinic. A nurse comes to prepour my pills and an aide helps me a shower. The PACE transportation is very important to me. I now get to my medical appointments like my dialysis on time. I enjoy the drivers. They are very good.
The activities here keep me busy. I especially enjoy trivia, bingo, name that tune, the music and pet therapy. I also like the outings. I’ve been on one and hope to do more. The biggest plus for me though is just “being with other people”.
