Age-Friendly Honolulu has launched an age-friendly business certification program called Kind2Kupuna. With support from Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, Age-Friendly Honolulu is working with companies who are interested in better serving older customers and supporting older employees.
Businesses who take our Kind2Kupuna pledge receive access to best practices, networking and recognition opportunities.
Age-Friendly Honolulu has created a poster, "10 Tips to Help Businesses Engage with Kupuna"Created with support from AARP and Plaza Assisted Living, we encourage businesses to adopt these age friendly practices. Click HERE to access this poster.
Our resource booklet also provides more detail on "age-friendly" steps that businesses can take to improve marketing, design, ambiance, and customer service. Click HERE to access the booklet.
