Nursing in PACE

May 28, 2021
Nurses at InnovAge are an important part of the care provided to seniors enrolled in the Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly, or PACE. Each person in the program has a team of medical experts and a personal care plan focused on providing a personalized experience. Learn more about nursing at InnovAge from some of our very own healthcare heroes.

What makes PACE nursing unique?
  • Team-Based Care. “Interdisciplinary team members all have their say in participant care. You’re able to discuss with specialists from each area and combine them in a way that makes better decisions for the participant,” says Tony, home care RN.
  • Participants. “I always learn something from our participants. When you’re talking to them, you’re interacting with history,” says Garry, clinic LPN. “Also, they have such a diverse amount of things they need care with. I’ve learned so much about how to care for those with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and mental illness.”
  • Consistency. “I love that I get to see the same co-workers and participants daily. Continuing that camaraderie every day, knowing participants can come to me with anything, makes this particular role unique to working in a hospital system,” says Yvette, InnovAge registered nurse (RN).​
  • “Regular” Work Week. “My schedule is typically Monday through Friday, 8-5. We don’t work night shifts or holidays except when we’re on call,” says Thao, primary community nurse.
  • Coworkers. “I always have a good support system at InnovAge,” says Sagine, nurse practitioner. “I never feel alone as a healthcare professional here, and I like that aspect.”
Nursing isn’t just a job at InnovAge: it’s a career. “Being a nurse is a calling to serve. Nurses have the enormous privilege of preserving human dignity amid uncertainty and in bringing hope to our participants,” says InnovAge Chief Nursing Officer Tammi Holden.
