Element Care Celebrates Khmer Community

July 20, 2016

The Element Care Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®), in Lowell, MA, recently hosted its first rooftop event to celebrate and thank the Khmer community and its leadership. More than 70 people attended the event, enjoying a Khmer buffet dinner, traditional music from a local band, and Khmer art exhibited by Chantha Khem, of Lowell.

“Element Care has a long, deep relationship with the Khmer community that began more than 10 years ago in Lynn when we enrolled our first Khmer participants, and now we are proud to be serving the second largest Khmer community in the country,” said Robert Wakefield, executive director of Element Care. “This event was about thanking the Khmer community leadership for all they do to support the community and Element Care.”

On hand for the event were Khmer community leaders and city legislators, including Lowell Mayor Edward Kennedy; Kevin Coughlin, Lowell deputy director of Planning and Community Development; State Rep. Rady Mom; and Lynn councilor-at-large Hong Net. Also in attendance were Khmer participants of Element Care PACE and members of the medical team, including Jenny Chiang, MD, and Chhan Touch, NP.

Element Care, founded in 1995, provides PACE services throughout the Massachusetts North Shore, the Merrimack Valley, and the northeast region of Middlesex County.
