Overview of Hawaii Assisted Living

Renown for its balmy weather, beautiful beaches and the Aloha friendliness of its kama’aina (residents), the Hawaiian lifestyle is the envy of many.

Each of the state’s major islands offers a different way of life from the leisurely small-town ways of Kaua’i, Lana’i and Moloka’i to the hustle and bustle of life in a major urban metropolis on O’ahu to the exciting and entertaining life on Maui and the rural country vastness of the Big Island of Hawaii.

As the Melting Pot of the Pacific, Hawaii is a mix of many cultures. This mixture of Hawaiian and primarily Asian cultures creates a strong community sense of o’hana (family) and a respect of the kupuna (elders). According to the 2009 U.S. Census, 14.5% of the state’s population is over the age of 65. And with an aging population comes many options for assisted living in Hawaii.
