Real Choices Hawaii: Access for all, more choices for you.

RealChoices Hawaii is designed for people of all ages and abilities. It provides eldercare and disability information and resources that enable you to make choices that affect your life and to help you to participate in the community in a meaningful way.

The user-friendly, universally designed eldercare and disability information system will be the first of its kind in Hawaii to provide consumers, professionals, government agencies, and employers access to information and statewide services. Making full use of the World Wide Web and emerging technologies, this Single Entry Point (SEP) or Web Portal connects public and private services with the community and provides consumers a means to participate in decisions that affect their lives.

For more information, you can read about our Missions and Goals, meet the members of our Governing Council, and view our Mahalo List.
