Wyoming PACE helps seniors feel more independent
September is National PACE Month. PACE stands for Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly.
PACE began about four years ago when it was noticed that seniors over 55 usually have no where to go this is a program through Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. A PACE van will pick up those who are participating in the program, and bring them back to the PACE center where the CNA's help participants into the center where staff will greet them.
Depending on the day participants will make crafts or play Wii bowling, group exercise, mind-challenging games, and other activities. There are also physical, speech, and occupational therapists there to help.
September's theme for PACE month is "Delivering Independence" and the program does just that by helping the elderly.
