K?kua Mau

End-of-life care work in Hawai‘i is truly unique, innovative & collaborative. K?kua Mau is a statewide partnership of over 250 individuals and organizations working with the general public and with the leaders of healthcare and government to strengthen partnerships and improve the way in which the people of Hawai‘i are cared for at the end of their lives. The program offers valuable resources for health professionals and the public to handle most of the challenges that emerge at the end of life. One of them, known as ‘The Complete Life’ is a two-part curriculum developed as part of a larger effort to improve end-of-life care in Hawai`i. It was designed specifically for faith communities but is widely utilized among caregivers, professionals, and paraprofessionals working in the field of aging.
