Kupuna Resilience During Covid 19!


During the Covid 19 pandemic, there was a new sense of urgency and interest in advance care planning to help ensure that patients’ wishes were accurately documented and respected as well as an increase in completion of advance directives, even early on in the crisis.  UHELP saw an increase in requests, not only to help with advance health care directives on behalf of individuals who had never before executed one, but also from individuals who were very much afraid that their existing advance directives would not be sufficient for them during the pandemic. The UHELP website added a Covid-19 update, which including information about how to execute and advance planning documents and provided a reference to a specific Covid 19 Addendum. UHELP also made presentations via ZOOM to the community on topics of urgent concern to older persons.



UHELP drive-through:  Legal Services with a smile and a mask!

We are not yet out of danger but can enjoy limited social events, family gatherings, dining out, our beautiful outdoors and beaches. As we transition, take care to stay masked, don’t forget to wash your hands, and stay healthy.


UHELP’s direct legal services will be limited but are slowly and carefully opening up. Our office and the new Clinical Building remain closed although we can provide services to older persons and their caregivers remotely until the University reopens. Please note that we cannot provide legal advice via e-mail and that there may be a delay in responding to requests for assistance.


We can be reached at 808 956-6544 or through e-mail at uhelp.edu@gmail.com to set up an appointment to talk with us.
