Personal Story – Nancy Copley

After Nancy fell during a stay at the hospital, she required shoulder replacement surgery.

Limited by muscle weakness, pain, impaired balance, and mobility, Nancy developed a new fear of falling. She went from being independent to being dependent on all mobility.

After the surgery, she was sent to a skilled nursing facility for rehabilitation and then to an assisted living community where she resided for a couple of years. That is where she heard about St. Paul’s Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) and decided to join. St. Paul’s PACE ensured not just her medical needs were met, but that she had a healthy living environment as well.

St. Paul’s PACE allows me to live independently and my children don’t worry about me. I wasn’t expecting to get everything I have since I joined, but I needed it.
