About

Aloha,

Waikiki Health's Friendly Neighbors program is looking for dedicated individuals to help care for our kupuna (seniors) in Waikiki and surrounding areas.

Friendly Neighbors program has been in existence for over 20 years providing assistance to kupuna ages 60+, and both veterans and non veterans. Our volunteers focus on encouraging kupuna to live independent lifestyle, resume daily activities, and to age in place in their own home environment.

Volunteers provide assistance with light house chores ( cleaning kitchen/bathroom), light meal preparation, shopping , companionship, respite, scheduling Dr’s appointments, ordering prescription medications from pharmacy and friendly visits/ calls to our kupuna.

A thorough orientation is provided, and our staff will work with you to match you with a client. You'll also have the opportunity to work out a flexible schedule with your Friendly Neighbor senior, depending on both of your needs.

Your companionship and assistance means so much to our kupuna! By volunteering with Friendly Neighbors, you help keep them living independently for as long as they can, avoiding the high cost of nursing homes.

Mahalo for your time and consideration.
