The King Lunalilo Trust Adult Day Center offers a nurturing, safe, and secure environment for seniors who need support in health, nutrition, social connection and activities of daily living.

Our team is specially trained to support age-related needs, giving family caregivers peace of mind in knowing their loved-ones are spending the day in a safe, fun and socially engaging environment while receiving expert care.

Our Philosophy & Objectives

We strive:

  • To promote the physical, mental and emotional well-being of participating kūpuna in a safe and secure environment full of joy, Hawaiian culture, ʻohana (family) and aloha (love, compassion).
  • To enable participating kūpuna to develop relationships outside of family in a socially stimulating setting; to reintroduce participants or allow them time to adjust to group interaction; and to reduce or prevent physical and emotional withdrawal or isolation that can result when elders live alone or are left alone for long periods of time.
  • To provide family caregiver(s) with time and opportunity to care for their own needs or pursue their own interests by providing care and supervision outside of the caregiver's own home.
  • To offer high quality, professional care services in a secure and comfortable environment to caregiving families and Adult Day Center participating kūpuna.

Fun Activities and Expert Care

We develop personalized care plans, meals, snacks, activities and excursions to meet each individual's needs. Activities and excursions may include: therapeutic activities, socialization, daily exercise, local entertainment, arts and crafts, monthly outings, pet therapy, and/or kani ka pila (music playing).

Day care services are offered Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. except on observed holidays.
