Employees Participate in Great Aloha RunMonday, February 19 was not only President's Day, but The Hawaii Pacific Health Great Aloha Run!
Employees representing the Arcadia Family of Companies participated in the 8.2 mile run. It was a great chance to get out in the sun and get some great exercise. Employees enjoyed the run, and most importantly, running to support over 150 non-profit health and human service organizations and community groups throughout Hawaii!
Arcadia Attends Informational Forum for Kupuna and Caregivers on MolokaiOn Friday, February 9, 2018, Arcadia attended an informational forum on kupuna and caregivers hosted by the Molokai Rural Health Community Association on the Na Pu'uwai campus on Molokai.
President and CEO Emmet White provided opening remarks about the privileges and challenges of caring for older adults. The goal of the forum was to share resources on issues like long term health, Medicare and Medicaid, adult day care, home health services, and navigating the ever-changing healthcare industry.
An insurance panel presentation included representatives from HMSA, Ohana Health Plan, and Medicare. Further, a presentation on Molokai caregiving resources included the Department of Health, Molokai General Hospital, Care Resource, Na Pu'uwai Adult Day Program, the Office on Aging, and more.
Keynote speaker Dr. Michael Cheang, Assistant Professor for the Department of Public Health Sciences (Center on Aging) at University of Hawaii at Manoa delivered a powerful presentation about the challenges in caregiving and how to resolve them. Chiefly, Dr. Cheang emphasized that caregivers must enter a more realistic mindset about caregiving, shifting from, “I am the only one caregiving,” to developing a shared leadership with other care partners.
Dr. Cheang touched on the three plagues of elders: Loneliness, boredom, and helplessness. He emphasized that it’s important to not get caught up in the activities of caregiving and to remember the humanness of giving care to another. Last but not least, Dr. Cheang championed for the idea that it’s important to set boundaries and limits for caregiving; do not be selfless or selfish during the process, but rather, "selfull" – a desirable middle ground.
We’d like to extend a heartfelt “Mahalo!” to our friends on Molokai for hosting an informational and beneficial forum.
