An Exciting New Alternative to a Nursing Facility
Sentara Pace with two locations, Sentara PACE – Churchland, located in Portsmouth and Sentara PACE – Virginia Beach located in Virginia Beach recognizes that older people often have medical problems that last for long periods of time and require services from several different sources. Of great concern is the fact that, as many people age, they become increasingly isolated from the support, companionship and resources of the community at large. Sentara PACE is that important link; assuring participants receive the care they need, when they need it.

About Sentara PACE - Churchland and Sentara PACE - Virginia Beach
This program is a comprehensive health care and supportive services program for frail seniors who wish to remain in their homes and community. It is an alternative to nursing facility eligible individuals, but who would prefer to remain at home with services coordinated by Sentara PACE.
The program is one that provides total care for participants, including comprehensive medical and rehabilitative services, in-home services and transportation. The program is offered in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk and Portsmouth.
The program is modeled after a national replication project called PACE, or Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly and is an approved Medicare and Medicaid provider. The program is operated by Sentara PACE and is a program of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Assistance is available from doctors, nurses and a full team of health care professionals all working toward a common goal: to help participants remain in their home.
All services must be furnished by or authorized by the PACE organization and participants may be fully and personally liable for the costs of unauthorized or out-of-PACE program agreement services.
