Joseph Stanley is no stranger to PACE having come from PACE of the Triad in Greensboro. He has a long history of working with PACE programs. In Massachusetts, he oversaw the operations of 2 PACE programs before moving to North Carolina in 2015.
“I have worked at PACE programs in Massachusetts and North Carolina. All programs are filled with experienced, skilled, dedicated health care professionals with the goal of keeping frail elderly participants in the community. I am a big fan of working in partnership with families and care givers to prevent nursing home placement. We all know people thrive more in their home setting. I see this as a Win – Win situation. There is genuine team work within the PACE Interdisciplinary Team, and true collaboration with the Participant and Care Givers. I wish this philosophy of providing health care could be replicated to all populations throughout the country.”
Mr. Stanley is married with two adult sons. He is a lifelong city resident, who is now enjoying a taste of country life with large gardens and raising chickens. Stanley is replacing Crystal Torain, who is moving into a new role as Director of Nursing for Piedmont Health Services, Inc.
