I had a stroke about 2 years ago when I was 85 years old. My daughter heard how wonderful the PACE program was, we looked into it and I can say that I completely agree. I have been with PACE 2 years now and it is wonderful. I have an aide who helps me with my medications and some personal care. The biggest benefit of the PACE program for me is that it has brought peace and joy to my life. I love to play the piano and do so in the Day Center monthly for everyone and also in the Maltas next door where I live. I also play in special events like the Christmas Program. To me “music is the speech of angels” and brings me great satisfaction. In my spare time I enjoy making prayer bookmarks and sharing them with others. With the PACE program I am able to live independently knowing that I’m supported by the whole PACE team, those I see and those behind the scenes.
