Lunalilo Home provides Adult Day Care services in a nurturing, safe, and secure environment for seniors who need support in health, nutritional, social and activities of daily living.

As our staff are specially trained to handle the complexities of age-related needs, family caregivers have peace of mind 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 participants in a secure and meaningful environment in an atmosphere of cheer and contentment, Hawaiian culture, ʻohana (family) and aloha (love, compassion).
  • To enable the day care participant 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 day care program clients.

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 kanikapila (music playing). (sample calendar)

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.
