Community First volunteers visited the Ke Ola No Na Kupuna of Pahoa at Sacred Hearts Church on May 4, 2016. Amy Hamane, Steve Yamami, Lisa Kwee, Katherine Rycroft, and Tony Kent spoke about the importance of Advance Health Care Directives for all adults, not just seniors.
The Kupuna were playing ukulele and dancing Hula when the volunteers arrived. After a warm welcome and informative presentation, the Kupuna had many excellent questions and felt better prepared to complete the forms and speak with their families about their health care wishes.
Volunteers returned on June 15, 2016 to answers additional questions, provide help completing forms, and sign as witnesses. Nine Kupuna completed their forms that day.
We would like to that Georgie Murray, coordinator, Ke Ola No Na Kupuna of Pahoa, for allowing us to share our message. We look forward to the next visit.
