All of the sixteen long-term care beds at Ka’u Hospital are in semi-private rooms. All the rooms have been recently painted and upgraded thanks in large part to community donations through our Adopt-a-Room Project. We strive to provide a very caring home-like environment for all our residents that respects their individuality and encourages continued engagement in the community. Our residents and their relatives are very much a part of our hospital ohana. Caring for our kupuna is ingrained in the culture of our staff.
Adult Day Health
Our adult day health program is designed to provide day time safe care and activities for adults who meet the criteria for nursing home admission but prefer to remain at home with family or caregivers. They can come once a day or every day depending on their needs. Referral is through their family physician/provider.
