It is often difficult to meet the needs of the elderly while they live independently in their own home.
LIFE is a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). This model of care is centered around the belief that it is better for older adults and for their families if their chronic care needs are provided in the community whenever possible. This is an innovative program in that it provides services to those who would otherwise need nursing home care while they remain in the community in their own home or the home of loved ones.

The LIFE Program promotes independence and the highest levels of functioning while allowing choice and dignity for our members and their families.

LIFE provides all needed preventive, primary, acute, and long term health care services so that qualified (or eligible), older individuals continue to live in their homes as long as possible. We believe that older adults with chronic care needs often do better when they continue to live in the community.
