We practice the art of caring...
LIFE-NWPA is committed to enhancing the ability of older Pennsylvanians to live safely in their communities as long as possible. We do this by coordinating comprehensive healthcare and supportive services for our participants as a unique alternative to nursing homes.
The LIFE – Northwestern Pennsylvania (LIFE-NWPA) model, which is nationally known as The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), can be traced to the 1970s, when the North Beach community of San Francisco saw the pressing needs for long term care of families whose elders had immigrated to the area. From that need a successful community-based system of care was born.
