In senior care, we were the first, and a model to all

In 1971, On Lok pioneered the model of care known today as "Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly" or PACE, which is now a certified Medicare program throughout the United States. On Lok Lifeways PACE allows seniors who are ill or disabled to live in their own home, in their own community, for as long as possible.

On Lok Lifeways PACE is a Medi-Cal option in the San Francisco Bay Area for seniors living with chronic illness or disabilities. Participation in On Lok Lifeways PACE is open to eligible seniors who reside in San Francisco, Fremont, Newark, Union City, San Jose and certain other cities in Santa Clara County, California.

We're a non-profit, committed to our participants. On Lok Lifeways PACE long term senior care is provided by On Lok Senior Health Services, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

On Lok means "peaceful, happy abode" in Cantonese. Dr. William Gee and Marie-Louise Ansak created On Lok in 1971, as a community based system of care for elder immigrants from Italy, China and the Philippines. On Lok Lifeways is our name for our model of the PACE programs nationwide.
