Hollywood icon Sharon Stone celebrated the grand opening of the InnovAge Greater California Pace Center in San Bernardino Wednesday. The Oscar-nominated actress joined Kish Rajan, director of business and economic development for Governor Jerry Brown at a ceremony launching InnovAge’s first Program of an all-inclusive care for the elderly (PACE) center.
Stone spoke at the opening of the senior care center, which provides medical care and a place for recreational activity and socialization to local senior citizens.
“InnovAge Greater California PACE helps serve the needs of a rapidly growing senior population in San Bernardino and Riverside counties,” said Maureen Hewitt, president and CEO of InnovAge. “We have seen a great demand for this innovative system of care designed to meet the needs of individuals who want to remain living with more independence and with a greater quality of life within their homes and communities. The program also provides caregivers with the peace of mind that their loved ones are enjoying the best quality of life possible, and offers them a respite from the often strenuous demands of care-giving.”
The InnovAge Greater California PACE (IGCAP) center will provide up to 2,000 aging adults with critical services they need to live safely and independently in their homes and communities, as well as employing more than 400 people at full capacity.
