Kilohana Visits Waikiki Aquarium

Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center clients took a field trip to the Waikiki Aquarium! The Waikiki Aquarium showcases dozens of coral species and fish, crustaceans, sea horses, sea dragons, pipefish, predators, and ocean life from the Northwestern Hawaiian islands you just can’t see on the main islands. Clients enjoyed the variety of sea life and everything the aquarium had to offer including an outdoor exhibit complete with a Hawaiian monk seal.

Adult Day Cares Jingle and Mingle Bash

Last week, Central Union Church Adult Day Care & Day Health Center and Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center got together to celebrate Christmas – all under one roof in CUC’s Parish Hall!

Clients delighted in wonderful entertainment from Arcadia’s hula halau and ukulele class, enjoyed a delicious turkey and stuffing lunch, and indulged in decadent cupcakes for dessert. Raffle prizes were given out throughout the program, and two special visitors came all the way from the North Pole – Santa Claus and his Chief Elf!

Mahalo to all the hands who played a role in making this Christmas celebration one to remember for years to come!

Enjoying “Extraordinary Stories from an Ordinary ‘Ohana”

Kilohana Senior Enrichment Clients recently enjoyed a field trip to Tenney Theatre to watch the world premier of Lee Cataluna’s play, “Extraordinary Stories from an Ordinary ‘Ohana.” It was an enjoyable show that spotlighted snapshots of the “local” family. Thank you Honolulu Theatre for Youth for a great time!

Kilohana Visits East-West Center at UH Manoa

Kilohana clients visited the East-West Center Gallery located on UH Manoa’s campus. The gallery focuses on exhibitions by the finest artists and performers in the Asia Pacific region. The current exhibit we visited focused on The Art of Indian Dyes and Design. Clients got an up-close look at some of the tools used, the different methods of creation, and the beautiful one-of-a-kind products reflecting Indian culture.

Thank you again to the East-West gallery for such an eye-opening learning experience. We’ve all decided we will never look at scarves the same way again!

Foodie Field Trip to Max’s of Manila

Our Kilohana seniors are learning all about the Philippines this month, and what better way to really get immersed than by trying out some Filipino cuisine!

We traveled across the island to eat at Max’s of Manila Restaurant on Dillingham. Our seniors tasted an array of treats: Fried Chicken, Pancit Bihon, Filipino Bistek and Lumpiang Shanghai to name a few.

Kumain Na Tayo, or Everyone Let’s Eat!

Kilohana visits the Honolulu Museum of Art

Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center clients recently enjoyed a trip to the Honolulu Museum of Art. Clients were guided through art that transported them to China, Japan and Korea. They learned of the sacred artifacts and details that created such priceless works of art. A special treat? The rare lotus flower was in bloom during their visit in their outdoor courtyard! They also took a quick spin in the European wing that focused on the Baroque style of Art. Thank you to the Honolulu Museum of Art for an amazing morning… we can’t wait to come back!

Scott Gardner & Co. Presents about Medicaid and Long-term Care

On September 14, Scott Gardner (left) and Robert Inouye (right) of Scott Gardner and Co., LLC, presented to our clients about Medicaid for long-term care. The audience included both clients and family caregivers from Central Union Church Adult Day Care & Day Health, Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center, and Arcadia Home Health Services. Scott and Robert shared their knowledge about the Medicaid application process and how Medicaid funding helps pay for long-term care once a person exhausts all of his or her assets. This workshop was one of several this year hosted at Central Union Church.

Thank you to Scott and Robert for volunteering your time and expertise to help our caregivers navigate the Medicaid application process!
