“Lunalilo Home is the perfect place to live. Their food is nourishing, and there are beautiful gardens and walkways to stroll and benches to sit on to enjoy the outdoors. Every week there are groups from the community to kanikapila. It is wonderful!”

Shirley Rosenbush, Lunalilo Home resident


E malu ke kanaka i ka lokomaikaʻi o Lunalilo.

To advance King Lunalilo’s wish to shelter and support those in need.


Nā kūpuna māhua in kauhale aloha.

Thriving kūpuna in loving communities and homes.


In 2018, after more than two years of community outreach and analysis by our Board of Trustees and leadership team, the Probate Court approved our Kauhale Kūpuna Strategic Plan for 2017-2027. Under this plan, our goal is to reach more kūpuna, with quality care, services, and accommodations. Whole-kūpuna wellness guides how we achieve that goal, understanding that kūpuna require much more than just physical wellness to thrive. Safe and reliable housing, healthy foods, social, cultural and spiritual activities and community and intergenerational interactions are all integral to ensuring kūpuna lead vibrant lives.

Over the next five years, we plan to expand our existing services by launching new offerings across ka pae ʻāina for kūpuna and their ʻohana and communities. We are also investing in our programs at Lunalilo Home, to ensure that our staff and facilities meet the highest standards of care for our kūpuna
