ABOUT ON LOK:  On Lok pioneered the PACE model of care more than 38 years ago; this model has since been replicated at 72 programs in 31 states. On Lok and other PACE sites provide frail seniors with the necessary primary and preventive care, nutrition, prescription drugs, physical therapy, social services and other acute and long-term care participants need in order to live at home rather than in a nursing facility. Participants pay no out-of-pocket costs if they are recipients of Medicare and Medical.
