Grants Awarded: Social and Economic Development Strategies (SEDS)
Grantee: Kula No Na Poʻe Hawaiʻi
Project Description: The notion of caring for kupuna (elders) and allowing them to safely “age in place” is a cultural norm amongst Native Hawaiians. However, services that foster independent, safe and healthy living are unaffordable for many kupuna and their families. The project goal is to establish a Kupuna Community Care Network, to serve as a one-stop-shop in Papakolea, providing 250 kupuna (residents over age 55 years of age) and their caregivers, with educational resources, cultural programming, clinical experiences and training, and an integrated geriatric – primary care health care delivery system, over the three-year proposed project period.
