Hawaii Community Caregiver Network (HCCN) was formed in 1995 to support family caregivers in West Hawaii and help them stay healthy in body and spirit. We envision a community in which caregivers are valued for their contributions (and receive social, educational, economic, and emotional support) and where the care receiver is able to live life meaningfully, with dignity and self-worth.
Our main projects are:
Sponsoring the "Powerful Tools for Caregivers" program in West Hawaii, which offers a six-week series of free two-hour classes designed to help family caregivers with their problems and needs; and
Organizing an annual caregiver conference, "Carousel of Care," which presents a full day of speakers, workshops, and self-care options specifically chosen for family caregivers.
As an all-volunteer grassroots organization, we are grateful for the support of many community sponsors, which include: West Hawaii Healthcare Council, AARP, the Regency at Hualalai, and Hawaii Community Foundation. For a full listing of our sponsors, see the "About HCCN" page.
Hawaii Community Caregiver Network is a 501(c)(3) organization.
