Genesys PACE of Genesee
County opens doors
Genesys PACE of Genesee County opened its doors to its first participants Saturday August 1.
PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) is a community-based service providing comprehensive care to adults age 55 and older living in
Genesee County who meet nursing home level criteria for care and who are otherwise able to live safely in the community.
Genesys PACE offers primary care, physical and occupational therapy, meals, nutrition counseling, social services, transportation and an array of other
services to participants in the program. They can take up to 10 participants each month, seeing an average of 130 participants daily.
Executive Director Annette Sivertson said, “Our focus at PACE is to enable participants to continue living as independently as possible in their home
and in a community setting.”
The facility hosted an opening prayer service and open house Thursday July 30.
PACE represents a multiple year investment in Flint of $3.9 million, and it will create 70 permanent jobs.
The facility is located at 412 E. First street in Flint, next to the Flint Farmers Market
