Day Center

Our Day Center is the hub of all activity for PACE of Southwest Michigan. Most of our participants come to the day center a few days each week and are transported to and from the center on a PACE bus.

While here they are able to see the nurse, pharmacist, or doctor, attend physical or occupational therapy, have a hot meal, and participate in social or therapeutic activities. See our calendar of events for today’s activities.
