Finding Gifts in the Grief Journey with Dementia: A Hawaiian Cultural Perspective

 Co-Sponsored by Kokua Mau and others (see flyer) we invite you to a special present presentation related to memory loss and dementia: 

"Finding Gifts in the Grief Journey with Dementia: A Hawaiian Cultural Perspective" with Leilani Kaho’ano, RN and Kumu Hula

Saturday, September 5, 2015 
10am to Noon

15 Craigside Solarium 
15 Craigside Place, Honolulu, HI  96817

Leilani is the Founder of Malama o Na Keiki and Prince Albert Circle, a Compassionate Care organization of ‘Iolani Guild. She has been a registered nurse for 20 years with a focus on neonatal intensive care and peri-hospice, palliative and bereavement care. Compassionate care is critical to the quality of life for any person. A focus on the caregiver is ever more important as the complexity of living with or caring for another person can affect faith, hope and love of the caregiver. 

Leilani has created a program to introduce attendees to Hawaiian concepts of grief, using Queen Emma’s journey of loss of self and renewed hope, sharing her story through the art of hula and chant. 

The presentation will feature:
  • A basic overview of Hawaiian grief concepts and how this unique perspective can help in caring for someone living with memory loss or dementia. 
  • Ways to care for the caregiver
  • Being "present" as it pertains to Compassionate Care
  • Information on grief and bereavement resources in Hawaii
