On Lok: A Successful Approach to Aging at Home

Grace K. Li, Cheryl Phillips and Kimberly Weber


The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is a proven model for successfully delivering medical and long-term care services to seniors whose desire is to age at home. PACE is a vertically integrated system of care that is centred around the belief that it is better for the well-being of seniors with chronic care needs and their families to be served in the community whenever possible. Through this paper, we share On Lok's story and how the PACE model has become a national model, replicated in communities throughout the United States.
