Our plan to ensure everyone in Hawaiʻi can care for our kupuna is making great progress. It's time to bring the plan to the next level by showing our elected officials how much we support long-term care.

We're hosting a Town Hall meeting with our friends at FACE Hawaiʻi to encourage our elected officials to make passing SB 2478 and HB 1885 a priority. Will you join us there?

The plan would provide seniors (or anyone who needs it) a long-term care benefit and establish a “care floor,” ensuring that everyone would have access to basic resources to provide care at home. It can can cover services like hiring home care aides and safety installations like rails and walkers.

At our Town Hall meeting, the bill's chief sponsor, Senator Roz Baker, will speak about how she developed the plan and how we can make sure it passes. Community members will share their stories of how this plan will affect their families. And there will be plenty of time for questions — so you can have your say as well.

The event is free and open to the public, and there is plenty of free parking at Sacred Hearts.
