Cardinal Timothy Dolan visited a South Bronx senior care center as his first official appearance in NYC since he returned from his elevation in Rome.

Seniors packed CARE at San Vicente de Paúl Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Intervale Avenue facility run by the NY Archdiocese.

Dolan dedicated Care’s new Senior Life Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), which is now scheduled to open March 1.

The PACE program will allow about 250 neighborhood seniors to get all the services a nursing home would provide -- medical care, meals, recreational programs and social time -- while remaining in their own homes or those of their families.
