What is Summit ElderCare?

Fallon Health’s Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), Summit ElderCare, offers complete, coordinated, individualized care for older adults who want to live at home instead of a nursing home.

The program’s team of geriatric care professionals works with participants and caregivers to address each individual's specific needs. This team is an essential component of the Summit ElderCare PACE program.

Our program is available to residents of our service area.
