Since 1917 more than eighty years ago, Palolo Chinese Home was organized to address homelessness among former Hawaii plantation laborers. Today, Palolo Chinese Home is the premier Adult Residential Care Home provider in the state of Hawaii.
With more than 80 years of tradition and experience behind it, Palolo Chinese Home knows the art, not just the science, of caring for elders. The Home endeavors to add life to years, not just year to life, to these venerable ones, the majority of whom are over 85 years of age. The Home is a private, non-profit organization open to all, regardless of race, religion, sex, or national origin.

Hawaii Neighborhood Outreach to the Aged (HiNOA)
Palolo Chinese Home will also enhance its historical role of providing support for the elderly who continue to live in their own homes in the surrounding community. A new and innovative program called the Hawai'i Neighborhood Outreach to the Aged (HiNOA) will more than double the number of people served by the Home.
A consortium of leaders in long term care in Hawai'i are working to develop a self-sustaining, culturally sensitive delivery system which will provide continuing care to elders in their neighborhood community. The program's first priority is the delivery of services to elders in their homes who may thereafter transition to facilities such as Palolo Chinese Home where Adult Day Care and Overnight Respite Care are available, and eventually, as desired, to Assisted Living and Intermediate/Skilled Nursing Care, including care for those with Alzheimer's and dementia.
