Services & Activities

Caring for children with complex medical conditions is our specialty. No matter what your child may need, we want to be there for you and your child.

Often a child may be considered stable enough to be discharged from a hospital, but parents may not know how to care for their child at home.  Kulana Malama’s child-friendly, family-centered environment meets an important need for Hawaii’s families.  Kulana Malama’s team of healthcare professionals provides expert care, while also teaching families how to care for their children on their own.

Hawaii’s medically fragile children previously had nowhere to turn when discharged from the hospital and needed ongoing care.  Generally, their only option was to enter a nursing home with older adults.  Kulana Malama cares for children from newborn to age 21, regardless of their family’s income.  We accept private insurance and welcome those who qualify for Medicaid.

Parents may also look to Kulana Malama for respite to provide temporary relief from the tremendous responsibilities involved in caring for their medically fragile child.

Our team can provide a high level of specialized care for children with multiple or severe conditions.  Children and young adults who are dependent upon one or more medical devices or require wound care, hydration therapy, or physical and occupational rehabilitation, or speech therapy are ideal residents for Kulana Malama.

Our full-time medical team can meet the needs of children with a wide range of health conditions.
