Hawaii is leading the way in longevity and caregiving for our aging Kupuna. If you're struggling with the demands of aging and caregiving,  worrying how best to manage your Kupuna's needs and providers, or facing family crisis and conflicts over caregiving issues and finances, come find some helpful answers, great ideas and connections with assistance in our community. Our speakers will share their wisdom and insights from decades of work on these issues. Meet some of the movers-and-shakers in Hawaii who can help you assure that your loved ones receive the care their need; help seniors age more safely and gracefully at home; and help resolve family conflicts regarding care for loved ones who need special care.

Our speakers will be:
