Providing Comprehensive Healthcare for Seniors

As a highly trusted healthcare organization, AltaMed PACE is committed to celebrating National PACE Month and ensuring the well-being of seniors during the ongoing pandemic. Our mission is to provide comprehensive medical care to eligible seniors, helping them maintain their health and enjoy a high quality of life. At Muir Diablo Occupational Medicine, we prioritize the health and safety of our elderly community members in every aspect of our practice.

National PACE Month: Recognizing the Importance of Elderly Care

Each September, National PACE Month serves as an opportunity to acknowledge the significance of Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). PACE programs aim to deliver comprehensive healthcare services that promote independence, dignity, and quality of life for seniors who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid in the United States.

AltaMed PACE recognizes the vital role PACE plays in supporting the aging population, and we are proud to celebrate this notable month by highlighting our commitment to providing exceptional care during these challenging times.

Ensuring Seniors' Health and Safety Amid the Pandemic

COVID-19 has presented significant challenges, especially for older adults who are more vulnerable to the virus. At Muir Diablo Occupational Medicine, we have implemented rigorous safety protocols to protect our patients and staff. We strictly adhere to the guidelines set by leading health organizations, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Our experienced team takes extra precautions to ensure a safe environment for all patients at AltaMed PACE. Some of the measures we have implemented include:

  • Strict screening protocols for visitors and staff
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitization procedures
  • Social distancing measures in waiting areas and patient rooms
  • Mandatory use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Regular testing and monitoring of staff for COVID-19
