FLINT — On Aug. 13, Genesys PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) hosted a Drive-Through Birthday Bash to celebrate their 5th birthday.

Genesys PACE opened its doors serving those “55 or better” in Genesee County in August 2015. The celebration included all Genesys PACE staff and some key supporters who have helped the program grow to serve over 150 Michiganders.

When the doors opened, Genesys PACE started with 20 staff members serving three participants for the first month. Five years later, their compassionate team of 80 is providing care and service to 150+ participants with uniquely different personalized, holistic care plans. Their mission is to keep participants out of skilled nursing facilities and in community, where they feel most comfortable. Today, they proudly provide this unique model of care for older adults in Genesee and Lapeer counties as well as many cross-over zip codes in Livingston, Shiawassee and Tuscola counties.
