The Plaza Assisted Living chief operating officer
In 2004, when we opened our first location — The Plaza at Punchbowl — assisted living was a relatively unfamiliar concept to most in Hawai‘i. Senior living communities existed, but the perception of what they were and what they were meant for was very different from today.
The Plaza at Punchbowl started off as an answered promise from two local businessmen to their parents. After facing challenges as caregivers themselves, they vowed to create a premier senior living community that offered a lifestyle and model of care built on quality, innovation, support and empowerment; a place Hawai‘i’s older adults would want to call home. With the opening of our Punchbowl community, their promise was fulfilled.
