Supporting family caregivers in West Hawaii since 1996
It takes a whole community to care for our caregivers.
So we can get together more often, we’ve changed our
full-day conference, held every 18 months, to a twice-yearly
Caregiver to Caregiver Breakfast at the Royal Kona Resort.
Please contact us to join our email list, and we'll let you know about upcoming events. Mahalo.
The 2019 family caregiver conference took place on Thursday, September 19 under sunny Kona skies, at the beautiful Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa. Many caregivers attended and took part in workshops and discussions, dined on excellent food, and enjoyed each other's company.
