Immanuel Pathways

Immanuel Pathways

You’ve spent a lifetime building your home. It’s where you’re comfortable. Relaxed. At your best. There, surrounded by memories is where you want to be, and we want you to continue living there as long as possible. Our Immanuel Pathways program brings the care to you; in your home and in the PACE® Center, so all your needs are met.

This non-profit Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®) offers a complete health plan for eligible individuals. Our comprehensive team of health-care professionals manages not only your well-being but also your connection to the community and the life you’ve made in your home. It’s a more personal and complete way of getting health care.

Being a part of the PACE program is very rewarding for a health care professional. The services provided by the program assist in keeping participants in their homes while providing them with socialization. Many participants speak of PACE as their “home’ or “family”.

I see people transformed every month. Folks who have been isolated in their homes become new people after meeting new friends and finding a place where they can belong.

The most unique thing Immanuel does is allow otherwise disconnected services to work in unison to make people's lives whole again.

What surprised me most was that the program was faith based and the loving care that is provided. We are not treated like patients, we are treated like family and that is a big thing.

Some have family, some don’t have family; but when you come here, we all have family. You can’t be anywhere better than this. They will help you in every way that you can be helped.

Everyone is so friendly. When I’m on the bus and we drive up to the front of the center, we all say “we’re home!” because it really feels like home.
