Why start a blog about our Luana journey?
The idea to start a blog came about at last week’s Luana Core Team meeting as a way to keep other people informed about Hale Makua Health Services Luana’ journey, our challenges and goals as a Core Team, sharing of neighborhood best practices, a forum to share thoughts and ideas, etc. We also thought that this would be a great way to keep track of our journey, replacing the scrapbook that we kept leading up to becoming an Eden registered home. With this blog we have the ability to share with staff, residents, their families, other organizations, and the public what we’re doing on our Luana Journey, something we could never do with just one scrapbook. Having a blog will also allow us to give more real time updates to readers, and is much more environmentally friendly. I’m doing a little catch-up to get us up-to-date on Luana related ideas and activities from September 2009 until now, so please bear with me as I blog our way into the present.
