Residential rates are based on a resident’s care needs and the amount of services necessary to meet those needs. A Level of Care (LOC) evaluation is performed by an applicant’s primary care physician (PCP) prior to admission and periodically thereafter to determine the degree of services needed. Once the PCP has completed the Hawai‘i State LOC evaluation form, the Home’s Director of Nursing will perform an admission assessment, which takes into consideration: medical condition(s) and nursing needs; ability to manage daily routines; ambulatory status; activities of daily living (ADLs) – bathing, dressing, grooming, etc.; and behavioral issues.

Depending on the individual’s care needs, residential costs range from $4,600 to $6,300 per month, plus a one-time $50 application fee.
