Make Your Home a Home for Life!
Is your home aging as well as you are? Will it continue to match your needs as your lifestyle changes over time?
Learn some of the great ways your home can be modified or updated to support your needs and lifestyle at any age.

Leaving the Hospital with Auntie Lani
Nobody ever plans to get sick or experience health changes as we age. It’s a fact of life that we do. Now you
can learn from “Auntie Lani” a case study exploring the ins and outs of everything from hospital discharge to
the types of care available at home. Featuring a panel of local experts and service providers.
This is a free event. Participants are encouraged to bring a food donation to help feed Hawaii’s
hungry families. Donations will be given to the Hawaii Food Basket.
