Mission Statement

Hale Kūʻike has three long-term residential care homes that specializes in memory care. Located in Nuuanu, Pali and Kaneohe, our homes offer a caring and supportive environment for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia related illnesses. Our goal is simple: to help change the standard of care for those with memory impairments in Hawaii by serving as a model memory care residence. With extensive local healthcare experience and a commitment to excellence, Hale Kūʻike strives to be on a par with the finest in the nation. The meaning of "Kūʻike" is to understand.


We need you! Your time and energy mean a great deal to our success and support for individuals in our homes that are living with dementia.
