Get to know Registered Nurse, Sandra Gibbs, who serves patients in Michigan.
Sandra is a respected registered nurse working within the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) in Michigan.
PACE provides comprehensive medical and social services to certain frail, elderly people (participants) still living in the community. Most of the participants who are in PACE are dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid.
PACE programs provide services primarily in an adult day health center and are supplemented by in-home and referral services in accordance with the enrollee’s needs. Since comprehensive care is provided to PACE participants, individuals who need end-of-life care will receive the appropriate medical, pharmaceutical, and psychosocial services. If the individual wants to elect the hospice benefit, they must voluntarily disenroll from the PACE program.
Graduating with her nursing degree from Jackson State Community College, Sandra is an active member of the National PACE Association.
