Kūpuna and caregiver support throughout the care journey
Our grassroots, community-led model leverages Community Health Navigators (CHNs) or non-licensed, non-clinical wellness advocates along with licensed clinical staff to provide a trusted resource in the community. Needs are supported through transition of care support, health education, chronic condition management, and social services assistance through a culturally relevant approach.
Patient Story: David Mitchell
“The best part of the program were the follow up calls and discussions, because we were able to go over things and I could write them down and it would serve as a reminder for me not to procrastinate - things like scheduling my doctor appointments. I also appreciated the weekly positive encouragement and reminders of how far along I had come on my own."

Caring for kūpuna is one of society's most essential tasks.
A fragmented health care system misses opportunities to ensure that our aging population is supported across the continuum of care. Kūpuna face daily challenges including chronic health issues, poverty, and access to food and social services.
Kālele Care Services is an advocate for kūpuna and a support system for caregivers. Navigating the health care system is a challenge for everyone. Our team provides comprehensive assistance in your care journey starting at bedside in the hospital until you are safely and happily back home.
Kālele is currently available for qualified Hale Makua residents. We hope to expand our services to support more kūpuna on Maui and other islands soon. If you are interested in care navigation services, talk to your doctor or health plan about supporting patient care services like Kālele.
