THE GRAYING OF HAWAII (documentary followed by discussion at 56:00)

Are Hawaii residents and government agencies prepared to deal with our aging society? These questions concerned video producer Audrey Kubota, who returned home to care for her aging parents. The experience resulted in a collaboration with filmmaker Marc Delorme investigating Hawaii's long term care support services.

Their documentary, "The Graying of Hawaii" is included as part of the INSIGHTS discussion on elder care in Hawaii. Joining the discussion after the conclusion of the film will be: NANCY MOSER, the grants manager from the State's Executive Office on Aging; DEBBIE KIM MORIKAWA, the City and County of Honolulu Community Services Director; LARRY GELLER, the president of Kokua Council for Senior Citizens; Dr. NEAL WINN, the co-founder and Chief Medical Officer for Ho'okele Health Planners; and BOBBIE ONZUKA-ANDERSON, a social worker in the field of aging for over 30 years. This conversation was recorded on June 18th, 2009 in the PBS Hawaii studio.

Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30 PM on PBS Hawaii.
