A division of the County of Maui’s Department of Housing and Human Concerns, Kaunoa Senior Services provides a wide range of exciting and exceptional services, activities and programs in Maui County for a new generation of seniors with changing and diverse needs and interests.

Kaunoa Senior Services provides a wide spectrum of programs and services for both independent, active seniors and the frail, homebound seniors of Maui County to enable and support them to remain in their homes as they age and experience their retirement years as their best years.

Of the many services and organizations in Maui County, Kaunoa Senior Center in Pa‘ia serves as a central hub of activity for senior programs and activities. The center provides opportunities for seniors to learn and grow through five ongoing, countywide programs:

• Leisure/Wellness Program
• Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
• Congregate Nutrition Program
• Assisted Transportation Program
• Meals on Wheels Program

All five of Kaunoa’s programs are available on Lāna‘i and Molokai, as well as Maui.

Leisure/Wellness Program

This program offers classes and activities for everyone age 55 and better to learn new ideas, and master new skills that promote lifelong learning, healthy aging, whole-person wellness and personal growth. Many classes are available online and in-person.

Kaunoa’s bimonthly newsletter includes class schedules and describes a varied selection of arts and crafts, cultural, exercise and wellness, performing arts, and other interesting classes and seminars.

The newsletter is available via email or postal mail at mauicounty.gov/thebestyears or by calling 808-270-7308, opt. 3.

Retired & Senior Volunteer Program

The RSVP program provides opportunities that allow the community to continue to benefit from the retired senior volunteer’s expertise and services while offering
avenues for individuals 55 and better to remain active in community life. RSVP strives to seek out volunteer opportunities at registered, nonprofit agencies and organizations based on volunteers’ personal interests and skills. RSVP is partially federally funded through AmeriCorps Seniors.

A monthly newsletter with current and trending volunteer opportunities is offered to registered volunteers via email at KaunoaRSVP@mauicounty.gov or by calling 808-270-7986.

Congregate Nutrition Program

This dining program offers a nutritionally balanced meal in an atmosphere that encourages rewarding experiences and socialization for seniors ages 60 and up, and offers a variety of arts, crafts, health, wellness, exercise and nutrition education segments. Meal centers are located throughout Maui County, and are known as places where seniors can gather for “more than just a meal.”

For a complete list of dining centers and more information, call 808-270-7306.

Assisted Transportation Program

This program provides one-on-one escorted transportation services for frail seniors who are age 60 and better with physical and/or mental limitations in order for them to be able to access essential daily living activities, such as medical appointments and other types of health-related visits, shopping for necessities, adult day care, adult day health, social services agencies, banking, etc. This allows frail elderly people to maintain their independent living capacity.

Meals on Wheels Program

Meals on Wheels delivers hot, nutritious, ready-to-eat midday meals to seniors who are age 60 and better, homebound and unable to manage their own meal preparation, helping them to continue living independently in their own homes. An important aspect of Meals on Wheels is the face-to-face safety check. These safety checks help put the family’s minds at ease.
