Rochester General Health System’s Independent Living for Seniors program is now known as ElderONE.

The program allows for frail seniors to live at home with support from a single team of medical, transportation and personalized care service providers. Health systems officials say ElderONE is a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) -- a nationally recognized model that provides medical care.

“In the 23 years since RGHS began providing this program to the Rochester community, the PACE model has earned national recognition as a benchmark for excellence in senior care,” said Kathryn McGuire, RGHS senior vice president for behavioral health, long term care and senior services. “With ElderONE, seniors can stay in their homes without compromising their safety or the quality of their care. The program has never been more needed by our community, and we’re excited to launch this new identity as a way to increase awareness.”
