Our History

On Lok PACEpartners draws upon a rich history of expertise and innovation at On Lok in service to the frail elderly.

Forty years ago in San Francisco, On Lok began creating a unique, integrated program combining medical, social, nutritional, rehabilitation, transportation and support services to make it possible for nursing home eligible seniors to continue to live in their own homes. Our success in San Francisco led to the national replication of our program which is now known as PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly).

To launch this replication, On Lok served as the original PACE Technical Assistance Center (TAC), spawning the first generation of PACE programs in the 1980’s. On Lok PACEpartners continues the tradition of innovation and excellence in technical assistance consulting. Our depth of experience with PACE operations sets us apart. We offer comprehensive support and expertise in all areas of PACE development from feasibility and start-up to on­going clinical and administrative support.
