The Survey of the Health of Wisconsin (SHOW) has partnered with Community Care, Inc. of Milwaukee to further their common goal of improving the health of Wisconsin's residents.

SHOW will use one of Community Care's clinic rooms to conduct a portion of its survey for participants in the area while connecting interested participants to Community Care's resources and information.

Community Care is a nonprofit organization that coordinates and delivers a full range of support services for older adults. It helps individuals with long-term care needs live as independently as possible. Its Medicare/Medicaid long-term care programs serve both older adults and adults with disabilities.

Community Care has Wisconsin's only Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), which offers a benefit package that combines medical care, long-term care and prescription drugs. The program serves individuals 55 and older who are eligible for nursing home care. Individuals who join PACE are assigned a care team that develops a cost-effective, one-stop-shop care plan.

The PACE team consists of:

  • Primary care physician
  • Nurse practitioner
  • Registered nurse
  • Social worker
  • Rehabilitation therapists
  • Recreational therapist
  • Dietician
  • Day center manager
  • Home care coordinator
  • Transportation coordinator
  • Personal care workers
