"I wouldn't be living today if it wasn't for Hope," said Ascension Living Hope participant Cynthia Owens. The all-inclusive program known as PACE (Program of all-inclusive care for elderly) has been in existence since 2002.

Ascension's Director of Marketing and Communications Jennifer Campbell said they outgrew the old location in a shopping center on Lincoln and Oliver and received 6.5 million in funding for their new state-of-the-art space on North Edwards Avenue.   

Campbell said the goal of the program is to be the one-stop shop providing day center services, home care services, and even a medical center.

"More people are wanting programs like this one because they want to stay in their homes and not have to go to a living facility," said Campbell.  

The program offers transportation, grocery shopping, and activities for people 55 and over eligible for nursing facility-level care.

Campbell adds there is never a lack of services. They also provide 24/7 support.

"If someone is not feeling well on a Sunday afternoon, they can call, they can talk to their doctor or their nurse directly. We can come out to the homes and help provide care to them."
