Message From Tori Abe Carapelho

Aloha and welcome to Navian Hawaii on the web. What began as a venture to provide quality end-of-life care for the people of Hawaii has grown considerably over the past four decades, and we’re proud to mark our milestone 40th anniversary with a new name, a new endeavor, and a new vision for our organization.

The inspiration behind Navian Hawaii was uniting “Navigator” and “Guardian,” words that embody two very important roles people play in the lives of their loved ones. Navian is who we see ourselves as—an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals working hard to navigate our patients’ journeys and guard their best interests. At Navian Hawaii, we are our patients’ fiercest ally and unconditional supporter, equipped with a team of caring professionals who provide emotional and physical relief for patients and their families.

Amidst this time of growth and evolution for our organization, we remain grounded in our mission to bring hope, reduce fears, and impact lives. As Hawaii’s premier hospice and integrated care provider, we continue to be deeply invested in our goal to provide quality end-of-life care to everyone in the community—regardless of their ability to pay.

If you’re wondering if Navian Hawaii is right for you, please call us at (808) 924-9255 at any time to speak with someone—24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We understand the journey we take in times of sickness and struggle can be filled with uncertainty, questions, and fears. Our Navian Hawaii staff and volunteers are committed to joining each person on that journey, offering the very best in relief from suffering, the very best counseling to support the entire family, and the hope for a time of compassion and love. We have walked that journey with thousands of families, and will join you, no matter where you are on that journey.

Thank you to our friends, supporters, and community members for your loyalty to what we’re now proud to call Navian Hawaii. As we look to the future, we’re thrilled to build upon our past successes and steer our ship toward calm seas and clear skies ahead.
