Hawaii - Housing Resources
Once it becomes apparent that the elderly members of your family require more assistance than you can give them, it may be time to look into a variety of senior housing options.
There are several options for the aging population; the most popular being assisted living facilities, nursing homes, villages, and CCRCs. Cost for these elder services varies according to the level and quality of care required. Here's a brief overview of the different options.
- Assisted Living Facilities: These facilities are ideal for seniors who require assistance with personal care, nursing supervision, medication monitoring, social opportunities, meals, housekeeping, and support services, but do not require the full-time care of nursing home residents.
- Nursing Homes: Nursing home residences provide round-the-clock, high-level skilled nursing care to those who require medical attention. An example of skilled nursing care includes administration of intravenous injections, wound care, and medication management.

- Villages: The Village solution to aging in place is a relatively new concept, enabling active seniors to remain in their own homes without having to rely on family and friends. Members of a "village" can access specialized programs and services, such as transportation to the grocery store, home health care, or help with household chores.
- CCRCs (Continuing Care Retirement Communities): These facilities include independent living, assisted living, and nursing home care in one location, so seniors can stay in the same general area as their housing needs change over time.
