Seven years ago, Alicia MacArthur enrolled her first senior into the newly formed Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. The idea of the program is to provide a wide range of diverse and coordinated services for seniors 55 and older who qualified for longterm care facilities, but wished to remain at home.

Along with providing the typical services covered by Medicare and Medicaid, PACE also includes care and services not traditionally covered by these programs, including transportation, dental and hearing, as well as home-delivered meals for which seniors would otherwise have to pay. The Cheyenne PACE program is one of 137 programs across 31 states and the only one in Wyoming.
