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;
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; and
Offering a monthly caregiver sharing group, held on the second Saturday of each month from 11 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. at Regency at Hualalai, 75-181 Hualalai Rd., Kailua Kona. There’s no charge to attend. For questions and to reserve your space, call Paulette Chang, 936-3191, by the Thursday before the meeting.
Compiling a Resource Guide for Kona Family Caregivers, which lists all the services we've been able to locate in Kona, with details and contact info about each agency or program. It's listed here in the website; you are welcome to contact us for a printable .pdf file which we will email you; and it will be available as a printed booklet some time in the summer of 2017.
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.
