What to Consider About Assisted Living in Honolulu
Hawaii's capital city Honolulu offers seniors breathtaking ocean and mountain views and a rich cultural history to explore. Honolulu also has seven assisted living facilities (ALF), sometimes called adult residential care homes (ARCH), and there are four more in the nearby cities of Kaneohe, Pearl City and Kailua. These facilities promote independence and provide 24-hour access to staff support. Both ALFs and ARCHs help residents with activities of daily living, medication, meals, recreation and home upkeep. Residents of ARCHs typically share rooms and bathroom facilities, while residents of ALFs reside in apartment units.
