Company: Fallon Health

Job Description:

RESPONSIBILITIES

Our mission

Summit ElderCare is the only program of its kind in central Massachusetts. Summit ElderCare started as part of a PACE demonstration project, and is one of Eight PACE programs in the State. There are more than 118 PACE programs nationwide. And, although Fallon Community Health Plan sponsors Summit ElderCare, a participant does not have to be an FCHP member to enroll.



Summit ElderCare is committed to maximizing the dignity and respect of older adults and to enable elders to remain in their homes and in their communities as long as medically and socially feasible. Summit ElderCare enhances their quality of life and their autonomy. Summit ElderCare preserves and supports the elderly adult's family as an integral part of this mission.



Our history

Established in 1995 as an alternative to nursing home placement, Summit ElderCare is focused on caring for older adults in an environment that helps enhance their quality of life and autonomy by helping them to stay in their homes and communities.



Recognizing a community need for more comprehensive services, care and support for frail elders who want to remain independent, and their caregivers, FCHP founded the Elder Service Plan, now known as Summit ElderCare. It started as part of a statewide project in Massachusetts under the leadership of the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center's PACE program. The program began with just eight participants. Since then, hundreds of participants and their caregivers have received services from the program.



Today, Summit ElderCare is one of six PACE programs in Massachusetts and more than 90 programs nationwide. This Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) first became available to residents of Worcester County, the city of Marlborough and the town of Hudson in 1995. The program was provided permanent provider status by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in September 2002.



Summit ElderCare values the trust and confidence that participants and their caregivers place in us. We take quiet pride in sharing the care. Summit ElderCare participants are neighbors and friends. We look forward to continuing our mission of helping older adults maintain optimum levels of functioning, well being and independence in the comfort of their own homes and communities.
