The Kāhala Nui ʻOhana.
Fostering the island tradition of ʻohana where residents and associates live and work as a family, Kāhala Nui is widely viewed as the premier, Person-Centered Life Plan Community. Located in Waialae-Kāhala, Kāhala Nui features private apartment homes for independent living as well as Hi‘olani Care Center for assisted living, skilled nursing and memory support.
We are truly committed to our Residents and strive to provide them with life experiences to enrich their lives. Our approach to service and care focuses on respecting and valuing the uniqueness of the individual. Always mindful of our Residents’ emotional needs and care preferences, we partner with our Residents and their families to provide appropriate services and care consistent with their lifestyle choices.
As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Kāhala Nui is owned by Kāhala Senior Living Community, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation led by a voluntary board of directors. Kāhala Nui provides support not only to our residents but also to seniors in the greater community through our Social Accountability Program (SAP). It is our approach to carrying out our mission to serve the unmet needs of seniors in Hawai‘i through the programs and services we offer and by supporting our community partner organizations, including Alzheimer’s Association-Aloha Chapter, Catholic Charities Hawaiʻi, Hawaiʻi Meals on Wheels, Kokua Kalihi Valley, Project Dana and Palama Settlement.
The Kāhala Nui Community also continues to explore other opportunities to advance our SAP program to fulfill our charitable mission and to demonstrate its responsibility to the greater community through the support of seniors and caregivers by way of education and training on topics such as self-care, elder abuse, prevention of senior fraud, fall prevention and advanced care planning.
The Holistic View.
The Kāhala Nui lifestyle was developed around the concept of wellness. Wellness is a mindset, actively practiced in daily life, that aims to prevent illness and promote good health. The practice of wellness includes using one’s mind constructively; expressing emotions effectively; building meaningful relationships and connecting with others (community); managing stress; taking responsibility for diet, nutrition, and exercise; and being concerned with spiritual development.
All of Kāhala Nui’s life-enhancing amenities, activities, and services actively engage the mind, body, and spirit to promote a sense of vitality and enthusiasm.
