About Summit ElderCare:

Offered by Fallon Health, we are the only program of its kind in Central Massachusetts and is one of eight PACE programs (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) in the State. Summit ElderCare provides a combination of medical, social and insurance services using an interdisciplinary team approach to help older adults avoid nursing home placement. The program offers outpatient medical care, social day programming, home care and comprehensive insurance coverage with no co-payments or paperwork for participants. Our Physicians and Advanced Practitioners are able to provide care for the frail elder not available in any other setting and enjoy the flexibility to devote as much time as needed for the clinical and social needs of our participants. We leverage a collaborative team approach to care planning called the Interdisciplinary Team (IDT). The IDT is comprised of Providers (MD/DO and NP/PA), Nurses, Social Workers, Physical and Occupational Therapists, Dieticians, Health Aides, Recreation staff, Home Care and Transportation Coordinators and Site Administrator. This approach to care is the gold standard for complex and frail older adults who wish to avoid nursing home placement.
