KULPMONT, SCRANTON, Pa. – September was National PACE (Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) Month, and LIFE Geisinger held weeklong celebrations at all its centers. 

As a PACE program, LIFE Geisinger keeps seniors cared for, independent and living in their own homes. 

Festivities at LIFE Geisinger Scranton included traditional carnival games and snacks. Program participants accumulated ticket punches to win the grand prize of pie-ing LIFE Geisinger physician James McKenna, D.O., in the face. Live music was provided by Pat Maue, who sang country classics and patriotic favorites, prompting many participants to hit the dance floor. 

LIFE Geisinger Kulpmont also offered live music from duo Bloodline, formed by father and daughter Geisinger employees, who played a crowd-pleasing set of folk and rock staples, touched on the psychedelic movement of the late ‘60s and even featured a polka song. 

The Kulpmont carnival day offered similar games and treats to the Scranton center but also included a bottle ring toss game, fortune teller and temporary tattoo parlor. 

LIFE Geisinger is a program for adults 55 and older designed to give seniors the support they need to live at home by offering comprehensive daily living and health services. The LIFE Geisinger team coordinates care based on individual needs, offering caregivers relief and support. 

Locations in Kulpmont, Lewistown, Minersville, Scranton and Wilkes-Barre provide medical oversight, physical and occupational therapy, home care and socialization.
