Trinity Health - Mercy LIFE

Mercy LIFE Alabama is a PACE Program (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly). Mercy LIFE serves individuals who are age 55 or older, certified by their state to need nursing home care, able to live safely in the community at the time of enrollment, and live in our service area. The PACE model of care is a coordinated and comprehensive program providing an interdisciplinary approach to healthcare. Medical, nursing and specialty care along with recreational therapy, physical and occupational therapy, meals, and transportation are all provided under the program. We encourage fellowship and independence while serving seniors and their families with dignity and respect.

PACE offers a unique level of involvement for nurses with patients (participants) and families. As a PACE nurse you can positively impact the ability of older adults to follow through with their health regimen; a real, positive impact on their quality of life. The work environment in a PACE organization fosters a truly integrated model of teamwork like no other you will currently experience in a healthcare setting. PACE is one of the only programs that strives to keep frail elders in their home and helps them to NOT live in nursing homes. PACE provides experience for nurses across the spectrum, including care management, clinic, in-home care, quality assurance, infection prevention, with leadership opportunities in each of these areas.
