Trisha Akahi, LPN, Head of Household

"I started working at Hale Makua 16 years ago as a CNA. While working I continued my education and soon became an LPN. I realized during my schooling that my passion was in nursing, but more important was my passion for connecting with elders. They’re really one of a kind, and the work I get to do with them is completely rewarding. If you are looking for a career in a fast paced, family oriented environment, then I would definitely encourage you to come work with us.”


Lorie Mendoza, Registered Nurse

"I decided to take a job at Hale Makua after doing my clinicals for nursing here. The staff was friendly and great to work with. If you want to challenge yourself and gain perspective about a part of life that people don't really talk too much about, then come work with us! It's a really fulfilling job. A smile from a resident after a long, hard day is the best feeling and all the 'thank you' I need!


Christine Fernandez, Kitchen Helper

"I love my job. It is very satisfying to know that I am helping our residents by giving them the best food. I have built relationships with my co-workers and they are like family to me. I love to cook. I love the work that I do. I love the people."
