About On Lok
We believe that every individual is empowered to age with dignity and independence. Our mission is to relentlessly pursue quality of life and quality of care for older adults and their families.
When On Lok founded the groundbreaking PACE healthcare model, we established ourselves as pioneers in elderly care. Today, we continue to innovate care for seniors of all ages.
Our dedicated volunteer boards of directors and passionate management team lead the way for our organization.
As a nonprofit organization, On Lok puts every dollar of funding to work for seniors in our communities.
Our strong voice continues to shape the landscape of healthcare, housing, and long-term supportive services for older adults.
Fifty years ago, Marie-Louise Ansak and Dr. William Gee co-founded On Lok on the principles that accessible health care, supportive services, and housing were necessary for the frail elderly to avoid unnecessary institutionalization. Today, we continue to carry forward their mission, with innovative programs and policy advocacy to help all seniors stay healthy, active, and connected to their community.
