Genesis HealthCare Corp. has received approval from the state of Pennsylvania and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid to operate a Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly in Sharon Hill, PA.

Life at Home, a medical care and personal support plan for the elderly, will provide services at the LIFE at Home Center in Sharon Hill, or at home as needed. Genesis is the first for-profit company to be a PACE provider, according to the major nursing home chain. The PACE program began this month.

The PACE model of long-term care is designed to serve older adults living in the community whose medical needs meet nursing home criteria. It is an optional benefit under Medicare and Medicaid.
