PACE’s Cases

Case Management…

OK, I get it. You’re stressed. You cannot do this alone. It’s alright. Let PACE help. PACE can assist with a multitude of healthcare situations. Since I have the point of view of a chronic patient, a parent/caregiver and a former healthcare executive and insider, I can give you premium assistance in your healthcare or eldercare crisis.

Your time needs to be spent handling other important issues. Let me handle this for you.

Since PACE is in the Greater Philadelphia Region, I am available to do services in-person in the 8 counties of the area (Philadelphia, Montgomery, Bucks, Delaware and Chester in Pennsylvania and Burlington County, Camden County, Gloucester County and Mercer County in New Jersey). Nationally, I provide knowledgeable & compassionate services to you privately by phone or online.

All services are provided at an hourly rate, which is NOT covered by insurance (which can actually be a good thing). Your privacy is always protected at PACE.
