Neighborhood Healthcare opens nursing home alternative in Riverside
Neighborhood Healthcare opens Riverside PACE center
Location provides tailored medical care to seniors from a medical team specializing in aging, chronic conditions
Riverside, Calif. (July 6, 2021) – Neighborhood Healthcare, a regional Federally Qualified Health Center providing a wide range of medical, dental, and behavioral health services, announced today the July 1 opening of its Riverside Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) center.
The new 19,000-square-foot location will offer tailored medical care to seniors from a medical team specializing in aging and chronic conditions.
For many, the facility offers a welcomed alternative to a nursing home. The PACE center uses an interdisciplinary team to provide medical care and coordinate support services that helps keep people in their homes and near friends and family.
“Community health is about more than just vaccines and checkups. It’s about giving people the resources they need to live their best lives,” said Rakesh Patel, MD, CEO of Neighborhood Healthcare. “Caring for seniors in this manner means providing the resources to do so in a comprehensive way that empowers these individuals to thrive in their community. We’re excited to open this facility in Riverside!”
Neighborhood Healthcare’s PACE medical team works with therapists, dieticians, social workers, and home care nurses to create a customized care plan for each participant to ensure optimal health, safety, and well-being. The facility is located at 4371 Latham St. in Riverside.
Services are coordinated daily by the team of healthcare professionals and activity managers. They include:
Primary and specialist care
Transportation to the PACE center and other medical appointments
Assistance at home with daily activities
Meal planning and preparation
“The care team is the magic of PACE. It is this team of providers, who know their patients so well and interact with them daily, who make it possible for seniors to live at home and age with dignity,” said Heather Washington, MD, Neighborhood Healthcare’s PACE Medical Director. “By coordinating the care needs of each senior, the PACE team provides the helping hands so important to the health and wellbeing of aging adults.”
