Customer Reviews

Plan the Route

As we were driving to visit the first assisted living facility recommended by A Place for Mom. my father said to me he would not say a word he was just going too sit there! I agreed he didn't need to talk, just look it over. Once the representative started explaining the features and opportunities and directed all questions to him about what had brought him to Hawaii in the first place, he opened up and chatted away. We did not end up choosing this particular facility as it didn't have a garden, but my father's attitude turned around completely and his choice is now a comfortable fit for him.
My dad is a retired pilot and kept putting off making any choice. I reminded him that he NEVER would have just jumped in the plane and taken off without a detailed charted route after making sure that that the fuel tanks were full.

Visited [date removed]. Beautiful place but mom didn't not like the pool since it was round and she couldn't swim laps. Also she felt neighborhood did not allow for beautiful walks that she is used to at Kapiolani Park at Waikiki. Lovely outdoor dining bistro outside at the pool. Very nice dining rooms.

Shows its age. Doesn't have a nursing home facility on the premises. Doesn't have a buy-in requirement which is a plus.

Can't beat the location

My Father used to live at this facility 15 years ago so it was a very easy decision to bring my In-Law’s here. The building itself is very nice and you have an ocean view. My In-Law’s apartment is right over a koi pond as well. You can’t beat the location for the price. It’s has been recently remodeled and they have new flooring and fountains. For activities, they have a lot of social events and a lot of trips to go shopping. I would recommend this facility to other families.

Hi there, thank you so much for the awesome review! We are proud that you were able to choose us twice to help both your father and your in-law's live better. We hope to see you again soon!

All of My Expectations are Being Met

All of my expectations are being met here at Hawaii Kai. The people here from the administration to the kitchen crew to the maintenance workers have been courteous and quick to solve any issues I might have. They have so much variety here in regard to food as well. I was surprised that they only offer plain yogurt, but otherwise, they offer several options at mealtimes, and are more than willing to accommodate special dietary needs. I'm still new, so I have not been able to participate in any activities yet, but they have various games and exercise classes here, among other things that I would like to join in once I have then chance. I think the single most wonderful quality of this community is its spaciousness. My studio is on the first floor, and I love being able to come right out onto the walking paths they have. It's really an expansive community in many ways, and I would recommend it to other families.

The staff is really good here

My Mom is here currently but will be coming home. The staff has been really good and they really do try their best to make sure she’s happy. I’ve eaten there quite a bit and the food is great. They have a lot of options available and it seems to change often. It’s definitely nutritious. They have all kinds of activities that the residents can participate in like trips out on the town, games, and there’s even a monthly calendar they put out that goes more into detail about what they have planned. Everyone was really friendly and helpful where they could be, so my Mom coming home isn’t based on her experience with the community itself. Overall, I would recommend them.

The staff makes my dad feel at home

My Father is very happy here and I like that the rent includes everything like his meals. It is less for us to have to worry about and the biggest thing is that he is happy. When we were looking at facilities, we needed something right away and this community was able to accommodate us within 1 week. This was our first and only facility that we looked at because we liked it so much. There are a lot of activities here and my dad is not required to follow them. For activities, they offer things like exercise, watching football, transportation to the mall, as well as transportation to medical appointments. The staff here is great and they treat my dad with respect. They make him feel more at home. I would recommend this community to other families.

Very nice facility

We chose to move Mom back to Hawaii since that is where she is from as well the majority of our relatives too. From what my Mother has said, she thinks the place is very nice. Of course this is a big change in lifestyle and the staff is doing what they can to help her adjust. My mom is not one to socialize nor participate in a lot of activities. It has only been a month and hopefully she will try to participate in some of the many activities they offer to keep busy.

We had very good experience of touring this community.It is spacious with lots of open spaces and walking area. The apt. are good size and look comfortable some even has the wash and dryer inside .
We tried their lunch which is good .The portion is just right with low salt and low sugar also has several courses to chose from.
This community appears very well managed and up keep.

Everything is going alright!!

My mother has recently made the move into this community and so far things are going alright for her. She has made the adjustment and is slowly getting acquainted with all of the residents in her new living environment. I have been pleased with the staff and am comfortable with the quality of care they have been providing her. Overall it has been a great place and I would recommend it to anyone.

Helpful Staff!!

I have no complaints about how things are going for myself since I made the move into this community. The staff are friendly and I am comfortable with the care they have been providing myself. They serve us three meals today and they all have been tasty. I also have been starting to participate in some of the great activities they have available to all of the residents. Overall it has been a pleasant experience so far and I would recommend it to anyone.

A great community

This is a great community for the care of a loved one. My mom was very happy with the staff and the attention that she was given. The food is outstanding. We were happy to know that she was active. The community is clean and we would recommend other families wold be happy with the care and the value.

A great place

I like the care that my mom is getting. great care with the excellent staff members here. The meals are good a nutritious. She does the activities and doing the exercises are helping here. I like this beautiful community and would recommend other families for the care and the value of a loved one.

This location isn't very convenient for my parents. Beautiful area, though.

Accommodating Community

My mother really loves this community and I am pleased with all they have done for us. They have been very accommodating and they were able to accommodate her special needs. The community is nice and everything looks very clean. The staff has been helpful and kind, they are always there when she needs some help. They do offer nice activities through out the week. She likes the food, and the meals are nice. They have been very responsive to my concerns. I would recommend this community.

Nice place

Hawaii Kai Retirement is clean and nice. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. My problem is my parents are in Assisted Living. My mother is capable of independent living but my father needs a little care with medicine and catheter. They lost all their independence moving from the house they lived in for 59 years. They have no family close by to help them. they are frustrated by having to schedule appointments on certain days at certain times. No one has taken them by the hand to show them how to take the transportation to the grocery store. The staff in assisted living is used to people who do not leave and my mother wants to leave. They end up taking taxis. I will be taking another trip out there to help them overcome some of these obstacles.

Needs To Improve

I think that Hawaii Kai needs to work on improving their care for the assisted living unit. All of their staff members need to be a little better trained at doing their job. I do not rate them very highly.

Thank you,

The surroundings are very n...

The surroundings are very nice. I visited both AL and IL. I met the LPNs in AL. I appreciated that they invited me to talk while they were eating their lunches. I was introduced to the site administrator and was invited for lunch. I did not get to finish my questions but will call later. There were two minor problems that needed my guide, the house manager, attention. 1) I'm not getting my cough medicine. I miss you; things get done when you are here. 2) Mrs. X is missing. She's not here and I called there and she's not there either.

This would have been our perfect spot...

This would have been our perfect spot when she was able to live alone.
