care planning and is called the Interdisciplinary Team (IDT). The
IDT is comprised of Providers (MD/DO and NP/PA), Nurses, Social

Recognizing a community need for more comprehensive services, care
and support for frail elders who want to remain independent, and
their caregivers, FCHP founded the Elder Service Plan, now known as
Summit ElderCare. It started as part of a statewide project in
Massachusetts under the leadership of the East Boston Neighborhood
Health Center's PACE program. The program began with just eight
participants. Since then, hundreds of participants and their
caregivers have received services from the program.
Today, Summit ElderCare is one of six PACE programs in
Massachusetts and more than 90 programs nationwide. This Program of
All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) first became available to
residents of Worcester County, the city of Marlborough and the town
of Hudson in 1995. The program was provided permanent provider
