Oahu Housing Guide - a listing of housing options on Oahu for the elderly. Some are apartments for low to moderate-income elders only, usually 62 years and older ("Elderly"); some are for moderate to high-income elders 55 and older looking for residences with additional support and amenities ("Retirement"); others do not have age restrictions and are based solely on low-income ("Family") or homeless situations("Emergency/Transitional"). This includes low-income senior apartments, Assisted Living Facilities, low-income family housing, transitional housing, and homeless shelters.
For elders who should not be living alone and need in-home support but do not require the level of care of a Nursing Home, consider Adult Residential Care Homes or Adult Foster Homes (Community Care Foster Family Homes).
