We serve East Bay seniors with PACE
The Center for Elders’ Independence helps you live at home, instead of a nursing home
PACE is a health plan designed exclusively for seniors. If you are age 55 and older, dealing with multiple health challenges and need assistance in your daily routine, CEI might be just the help you need.
We personalize your care
We help everyone differently
You and your care team will work together to create a personalized care plan that may include some or all of CEI’s services. These depend on your medical needs, which may change over time. Our care is provide in your home, at the PACE center or sometimes over telehealth.
We keep you thriving
Your PACE care team includes 11 professional disciplines and every member of your care team understands your needs.
Each week, this team meets in one room, face-to-face, to review care plans and changes in medical conditions, social engagement and emotional well-being.
Your life will get better with PACE
Our mission is to help seniors live independently at home and we understand sometimes that means you need extra help.
You will always be one phone call away from talking with a real person
We give you a single point of contact—your social worker at CEI. You can also speak with any person on your care team.
We spend time with you
We have 6 centers in the East Bay. This is where we’ll work with you on your strength and balance in the senior gym, introduce you to new activities, eat nutritious meals, make new friends and celebrate cultural holidays.
We get you out of the house and having fun
Having a social life and friends is a great way to support your overall health. CEI offers both structured and unstructured social opportunities through art, drama, music, events, exercise, and field trips like an A’s game or a waterfront picnic. We also offer virtual activities and exercise classes to help keep you connected while you are at home. We’ll even train you on how to use the iPad to pop into a trivia game or exercise class from home.
CEI helps you avoid the hospital
If you are ever hospitalized, enter rehabilitation or skilled nursing, we coordinate care.
When you are ready to come home, we help you get settled.
Cost is not a barrier
Medicare and Medi-Cal reimburse Center for Elders’ Independence directly for care. If you are enrolled in Medicare and Medi-Cal, you will pay nothing or you will pay your Medi-Cal “share of cost”. When you apply to CEI, we can help you apply for Medicare and Medi-Cal if you don’t already have coverage.
