On September 15, On Lok Lifeways 30th Street PACE Center celebrated “Dia de Independencia,” celebrating Independence Day in 7 Latin American countries (9/15: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua; 9/16: Mexico; 9/18: Chile). The celebration included a live performance by Mariachi Nueva Generacion.
On Lok Lifeways believes that exceptional medical care respects a person’s cultural customs, language and beliefs. It provides bilingual caregivers (such as doctors, case workers and aides) whenever possible at PACE Centers, such as 30th Street. Conversing in a native language provides peace of mind, shows respect, and builds trust. On Lok Lifeways is designed so that even very frail seniors can continue living in their own homes while receiving essential services and support.
