The National Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) Association will be holding its yearly conference from October 14-17 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, and Amramp will be hosting an exhibitor booth to educate attendees on Amramp’s comprehensive line of home accessibility and Aging in Place products and services. This will be the first year that Amramp has participated in the annual PACE conference, which changes locations from year to year.

For those unfamiliar with the organization, PACE is for seniors age 55 and older who would otherwise need to live in nursing homes, but instead offers them services and support to continue living at home or with loved ones. Although PACE participants need to have a certifiably proven need for nursing home care, only about 7% nationally reside in nursing homes, and if they do, PACE pays for it and continues to coordinate the recipient’s care.

PACE is a model of healthcare “centered around the belief that it is better for the well-being of seniors with chronic care needs and their families to be served in the community whenever possible.”

Amramp and PACE are a perfect match: Amramp provides and installs ramps and home accessibility products such as lifts and installation of home safety products by experts to make nearly any home accessible to people of all mobility levels. Amramp believes the PACE goal of community-based care improves quality of life for elders and those with chronic conditions who need support.

“Amramp is thrilled to be taking part in our first PACE conference,” says Barbara Gayton, Amramp’s director of marketing. “We are eager to show new products and home accessibility solutions to PACE participants and administrators that are already making Aging in Place possible for thousands of Americans and Canadians.”

PACE holds its annual conference to inform participants of new program offerings, but also to talk about changes in law and policy that affect the program, such as the recently passed Affordable Care Act. The conference location changes year-to-year, but each location is in a district that offers PACE programs, which allows guests to actually visit different sites and see the programs “in action.”

The 2012 Pace conference highlights include  symposia, luncheons, education sessions, and roundtable discussions. And of course Los Angeles offers a diverse array of fun places to visit: Attendees will have the chance to see historic landmarks like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Santa Monica Pier, the Hollywood Sign, and Beverly Hills – but one of the most anticipated outings of the weekend is an evening at Universal Studios Hollywood.

If you will be attending the PACE Conference Los Angeles 2012, make sure to visit the exhibitor expo, stop by the Amramp booth and say hello to Director of Marketing Barbara Gayton!
