    They Are Like Family

    “After over a year as a participant at the San Jose Center, I want to tell you that I think it is outstanding – the comprehensive all-inclusive care concept works wonderfully when well-implemented, as it is here. The center is always kept bright, clean, neat and orderly. The staff is courteous, friendly, polite, professional, caring and helpful, and I think of them as cherished extended family, and have developed friends with many of them – priceless for one who has lost many friends and family over the years. So it is somewhat distressing when a valued staff-member-friend leaves to resume schooling or to pursue their chosen career – the one difficulty with such a fine and likable staff, but all quite understandable.”

    On Lok Takes Care of Me

    Carlos Areyou, Participant
    March, 2014

    “Before I joined On Lok, I was missing doctor’s appointments because I would forget or would not feel well to travel on my own. Sometimes I would not have money for the bus. Now, On Lok’s staff keeps track of my appointments and the bus is there to pick me up and bring me to see the doctor. As a senior, sometimes you feel bad and slow in the morning, and you do not have energy to go anywhere. A driver from On Lok would give me a call and ask me to be ready to be picked up and go to On Lok. So I get up and get ready and then they take care of me.”
