Trip to the Honolulu Museum of Art

The residents of Hale Ola Kino by Arcadia embarked on a cultural adventure at the Honolulu Museum of Art (HoMA), immersing themselves in the captivating exhibits. Among them, the "Fashioning Aloha" special exhibition offered a fascinating exploration of the evolution of aloha wear, spanning from the 1930s to present day.

The journey continued through time and culture, traversing across the world with a display of ancient art dating from the Neolithic era (c. 10,0000–2000 B.C.E.) to the 6th century. They even marveled at Claude Monet's iconic "Water Lilies," adding a touch of European artistic brilliance to their experience.

Mother’s Day Fun

Mother's Day at the Arcadia Adult Day Care was a joyous affair brimming with festivities. Clients crafted vibrant Mother's Day wreaths using colorful tissue paper. The highlight of the day was the enchanting photo booth, where clients and their families captured precious moments together, surrounded by the day's splendor.

Ka Ikena Lauae

Arcadia At Home members dined at Ka Ikena Lauae, Kapiolani Community College’s lab restaurant, where culinary arts students showcase their semester's skills. Members indulged in dishes such as escargot, stuffed cremini mushrooms, leg of lamb, pork tenderloin wellington, and citrus grilled swordfish in frutti di mare bouillabaisse sauce.

Dog Park Blessing

Residents and staff at 15 Craigside came together to bless the new 15C Dog Park! It’s a wonderful addition for resident dogs to frolic freely and for owners to relax beneath the shade of the trees. AFC Chaplain, Dr. Rev. George Scott led the blessing with a prayer and a song even the dogs enjoyed, plus a scattering of salt around the premises.

Etch A Sketch Art

Some talents are truly meant to be shared. At the Arcadia Adult Day Care, client Mrs. Clara Lau showcased her remarkable skill of sketching portraits on the Etch A Sketch Doodle. Check out her beautiful renditions of Stacey Young, Home and Community Based Services COO and Jerlene Kawasaki, Arcadia Adult Day Care Programs Director.

Mother’s Day Celebration

At the 15 Craigside Health Care Center, residents celebrated Mother's Day by creating beautiful tissue flower arrangements. While they enjoyed tea and treats, they engaged in heartfelt conversations, reminiscing about cherished memories and sharing stories about love and family. It was a day filled with joy, laughter, and a sense of community.

Arcadia Special Breakfast

Arcadia residents were treated to a lavish breakfast, featuring regular or crab egg benedicts, avocado toast, lox with all the fixings, and an array of pastries. Their taste buds were delighted, and their hearts full of gratitude to Executive Chef & Director of Dining Services, Ryan Nomura and his dedicated team for crafting such a memorable dining experience.

Sunrise Glow from Jobs Peak

Arcadia Family of Companies Board Chair, Mr. Martin Zorn, captured the breathtaking beauty of the Job Peaks Mountain Range at sunrise. Taken at approximately 5:50 a.m., it reveals the sun delicately casting its first rays upon the mountain summits. The mountain range was named after Moses Job, who ran a store on the base of the mountain in the early 1950s.
