The California PACE Association (CalPACE) is a 501(c)(6) association dedicated to the expansion of comprehensive health care services to the frail elderly through the Program of All-inclusive Care for Elderly (PACE).
The Association was officially incorporated in August 2007 by the five existing California PACE programs, which have been in operation for several years. Today, there are 12 operational PACE programs in California with several more expected to open soon.
Although the CalPACE programs have worked as an informal collaborative in the past, they have identified the need and the benefits both collectively and individually, by formalizing the relationship. To this end, CalPACE was developed to support, safeguard, and expand PACE programs and initiatives in California through education and advocacy to enhance the lives of PACE participants and their caregivers.
