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!
A spooktacular time at Kilohana!
Kilohana had a spooktacular monster mash of a day this Halloween. The Kilohana Preschool started off the festivities with the cutest costume parade, filled with princesses, witches, super heroes and more! We then had a visit from our mini horse (unicorn) friends at Therapeutic Horsemanship of Hawaii. Clients got lucky with lucky number and then we ended off the day with some masks sure to make a scream! It was surely a fun filled, laugh out loud time!
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.

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!
Clients enjoy bon dance at sister adult day care
Last week, Central Union Church Adult Day Care & Day Health Center hosted its annual bon dance at Parish Hall, and Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center’s clients were invited to join in on all of the fun.
Hawaii Shin Kobukai Dance Group led clients and staff in a variety of dances. In between dances, there was plenty to do, including games like fishing, ladder golf and bean bag toss, and special destination photo booths including Mt. Fuji!
Fukuya Delicatessen provided an ono bento lunch and mochi dessert. We’d like to extend a special mahalo to Hawaii Shin Kobukai Dance Group, Central Union Church and family volunteer Barbara Tome for a great bon dance!
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!
