Welcome to Panorama. Welcome to PACE.


Having chronic care needs doesn’t mean you can’t live at home and thrive in the community you love. Panorama - Esperanza's Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) - offers an alternative to nursing home care and provides seniors with the services and support they need to age in their own community.

PACE aims to improve the quality of life of seniors who need ongoing attention and care, but don’t want to lose the independence that comes with living at home. To be eligible, seniors must be:

  • 55 or older
  • certified by the state to need nursing home care
  • able to live safely in the community at the time of enrollment, and
  • living in our PACE Zip codes: 60453, 60455, 60456, 60458, 60459, 60501, 60609, 60629,
    60632, 60636, 60638, 60652

Disenrolling from Panorama

You can choose to disenroll from Esperanza's Panorama PACE program at any time.  We'll coordinate the disenrollment process with Medicaid and Medicare (as applicable) to make sure any transitions in your care happen as seamlessly as possible.  In rare occasions, a participant may have to be disenrolled because they've moved out of our approved service area, they displayed threatening or disruptive behaviors, or because of changes in our ability to deliver care.  In these instances, the state will review and make a final determination about a participant's disenrollment.
