Our mission to support our kupuna and challenged adults includes supporting our caregivers and families taking care of their loved ones. At the Hilo Adult Day Center, we see every day the compassionate hearts, physical effort and the attitude and mentality it takes to be a good caregiver – and it starts with taking care of the self.

Our Caregiver Connection program provides opportunities for all caregivers in our community to learn, share, connect with others and enjoy a little respite time. We provide a monthly Caregiver Support Group, usually held on the third Thursday of each month, and a Caregiver Family Respite Day on the third Saturday of each month.

The monthly Caregiver Support Group allows for time to to share and even learn with other caregivers, who have similar challenges and graces in their lives as they care for someone they love. We are hoping to resume these monthly meetings via Zoom as soon as possible. Our Caregiver Family Respite Day will also resume on Zoom shortly. Stay tuned for more details!
