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 committed to ensuring our residents experience an enriching life, compassionate care and the utmost in dignity and respect throughout their retirement years. Our approach to service and care focuses on respecting and valuing the uniqueness of the individual. We seek to maintain, even restore, the personhood of individuals through the creation of a psychological, social and physical environment that promotes personal worth, social confidence and hope.
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 Settlment.
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.
