Sharing Our Knowledge
Lighting others' candles to shine brightly
It is a plain fact that Hawaii's elders will need more care services than are currently available. With the coming 'Silver Tsunami' we fully realize that our capacity to provide care to the community only amounts to just a drop in the bucket. So we committed to make a bigger impact by sharing our knowledge and expertise to help seniors prepare for the future, regardless of whether or not they become one of our residents.
Since 2012, we have been assisting the community to understand elderly care issues in several ways:
Over the years, we have met with countless families to assist them to understand what care options exist and the factors to consider when evaluating those options for their needs. There is no substitute for first-hand experience and observing a care facility in person! If you are interested in a face-to-face consultation, please schedule with us.
Hawaii's Good Life Expo - Senior Fair
Each year since 2012 we have hosted an informational table at the Senior Fair to raise awareness of elderly care issues and assist people seeking guidance how to choose among the various options. You can find us there every late September.
Elderly Care Options Seminar
Since 2013 we have provided workshops and seminars to companies, churches, community organizations, and interest groups, to learn about the different types of elderly care options in Hawaii. If you would like to schedule a presentation, please contact us. You can also learn the basics about local care options here.
Beginning in 2017, we have participated with Be Ready Manoa at various seminars and events to prepare our care home in case of emergency, and to raise awareness in the community about senior issues during a disaster.
Expert in Residence Program
In 2018 we launched a new program to connect experts in their field with our community at large.
Kupuna Care Pair
In 2021, President Todd Pang extended our elderly care awareness campaign and launched Kupuna Care Pair, an exciting online initiative that combines our knowledge base with technology, so families can find appropriate care more quickly and easily. Kupuna Care Pair's free and anonymous self-service assessment tool helps families to determine which category of care (ie Assisted Living Facilities, Adult Residential Care Homes, etc.) would be most appropriate, based on care needs, budget, and personal preferences, but without the use of any sensitive information. Then families can learn about each option in detail, and lastly they can search Kupuna Care Pair's interactive map of every licensed care facility and service across the State of Hawaii to make contact with their desired facility.
