Company Description

Who We Are:
Senior CommUnity Care is a new PACE facility in Lansing, MI that opened in April of 2015. We are a three way partnership between Volunteers of America, Ingham County Medical Care Facility, and United Methodist Retirement Communities. Visit our website at http://seniorcommunitycaremi.org/

Our Mission:
"To promote and sustain the independence of seniors wishing to remain in the community"

Who We Serve:
Frail elderly age 55 and older that meet nursing home level of need and want to remain in the home. We serve folks living in Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton counties.

How We Do It:
At our day center in Lansing we provide medical treatment, medications, therapy, activities, transportation, meals, and any other needed medical or support services. In addition, we also provide in-home care for our participants through our nursing team.

What Is PACE?
PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) delivers all needed medical and supportive services. The program provides the entire spectrum of care and services to seniors with chronic care needs while maintaining their independence in their homes for as long as possible. This model has been in existence since the 1970s and we are the first and only facility of this kind in the Lansing area.

What Would My Schedule Look Like?
Because no one lives at our day center we don't have 'night shifts'. Our center is open Monday - Friday from 8:00am until 5:00pm. Our scheduling is much more consistent than a typical skilled nursing facility or assisted living.
