Providence ElderPlace is an innovative program known as PACE (Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly), a comprehensive care model that offers health, housing, social service and care coordination solutions to older adults and peace of mind to their families. We are dedicated to providing dignified care to seniors in a compassionate environment built on principles of responsive service, top-quality health care and trust.

ElderPlace Health and Social Centers
Participants attend one of eight Health and Social Centers on a regular basis. Transportation is provided. At the center, participants receive comprehensive integrated care from their ElderPlace team of health care and social service professionals and our affiliates. For those who are unable to attend a Health and Social Center, their team will visit them at home. At the centers, Participants may also join in a number of scheduled activities, socialize with friends and enjoy a nutritious, tasty lunch during their visit.
Most Participants live in the surrounding community either in their own home or with family, in an assisted living or residential care facility (ALF or RCF) or an adult care home (ACH). ElderPlace contracts with hundreds of these facilities throughout Multnomah County and in designated areas of Washington County.
ElderPlace also operates three supported housing facilities, one each in the Irvington Village, Glendoveer and Cully neighborhoods. Each facility is licensed by the state of Oregon and staffed by Providence ElderPlace employees.
