On Lok PACE
We are a non-profit committed to our participants.
Dedicated to The Care of Elders:
PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) was
developed to answer the many problems around caring for frail
seniors. The PACE model is centered on the belief that it is better
for the well-being of seniors with chronic care needs and their
families to be served in their community whenever possible.
Seniors, their family members, and caregivers face many issues,
including transportation to appointments, management of
medications, coordination of medical care from different
specialists, lack of social interaction, and ability to stay alone
at home. On Lok PACE participants receive in home care services and
transportation to a On Lok PACE center for primary medical care,
social and recreational activities, and other senior care
