The cost of residential care for seniors is out of reach for many. How is a working couple with children still at home supposed to take care of a failing parent, especially one with cognitive issues, who wants to stay home? One excellent resource, if you’re fortunate enough to live in proximity to it, is PACE (short for “Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly”). There are approximately 250 PACE centers around the country, twelve in North Carolina. The PACE site in the Raleigh/Durham area, called Senior CommUnity Care of NC (SCCNC), provides services to residents of Wake, Durham, and a portion of Granville Counties.
