Step inside PACE
After a major stroke, Perry’s brother didn’t know where to turn. He and his family tried to help, but it was overwhelming. They were relieved when Perry was eligible for Genesys PACE’s one-stop, all-inclusive care. Sports were always a big part of Perry’s life before his stroke. Now he is active again. Perry bikes and dribbles a ball for therapy and walks to and through the Flint Farmers’ Market.
JoAnne moved in with her daughter after her husband died. She was quiet and showed little emotion during her first visit to Genesys PACE. Now, she is excited and feels more independent stepping onto the PACE bus. She looks forward to time at PACE with friends and keeping busy. There is peace of mind for her daughter when she’s at work. Mom’s care is overseen by caring staff and she’s safe. Plus, JoAnne’s energy and interests have bloomed again.
